Example text

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage[edit source]

Use template {{xt}} (the name of which stands for "example text") in order to format examples of style, especially when using quotation marks or italics could be confusing. This changes the given text to the serif typeface and green color. For cases where the serif typeface is not desirable (e.g. in blocks of computer code), use {{bxt}}, which substitutes boldfacing. This template is not for use as quotation markup in talk pages; use {{tq}} instead.

For examples of bad/wrong style, in red, use {{!xt}}.

The {{xtd}} template exists for deprecated examples.

As with all templates, when the text, given as the template parameter, has any equals characters ("="), prefix the text with |1= in order to ensure any equals signs in the given text are correctly interpreted as being part of the normal text.

The accompanying change in typeface to a serif typestyle, (example text) is to make it fully accessible for those with color blindness.

The parameter |title= takes text, which cannot be marked up in any way, and displays it as a pop-up "tooltip" (in most browsers) when the cursor hovers over the span

Examples[edit source]
