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

Format Demo, shows how non-expandable wikitext is rendered.

Usage[edit]

{{fd|''[[p]]''    '''q'''
r |rarr| 

[[s]]}}

gives:


''[[p]]''    '''q'''
r →

[[s]]

gives:

p q r →

s



Codes like "→" are represented in the even-positioned parameters 2-10. Each can contain a single code like "rarr" (without the "&" and the ";"). The odd-positioned parameters 1-11 are for the wikitext before, after, and in between.

Limitations and special considerations[edit]

As usual, if the parameter contains "=", even in a URL or in the definition of an attribute of an XML-element, put "1=" in front. A "|" in the wikitext is represented by {{!}}.

The template shows before "gives" the rendering of the expanded parameter in <pre> tags, and after "gives" the rendering of the parameter itself, with the following consequences.

Wrong results[edit]

For the examples, see also the edit box.

The template does not show <nowiki> tags before "gives", but shows the rendering of the wikitext with them:

''p''

gives:

''p''


The template does not show <pre> tags before "gives", but shows the rendering of the wikitext with them, i.e., it just removes them and shows the wikitext without further change:

a
b

gives:

a
b


If, contrary to the instructions, the code "&amp;" is not represented in the special parameters, the template will display it as "&" both before and after "gives"; if this is followed for example by "arr;" it will wrongly show that the wikitext "&rarr;" is rendered unchanged:

&arr;

gives:

&arr;


Limitation of wikitexts[edit]

For the examples, see also the edit box.

The effect of expansion is not shown, what is shown before "gives" is already expanded:

<span class="nowrap"><code>{{tlc|...}}</code></span>

gives:

{{tlc|...}}


For demonstrating expansion, see Help:Expansion demo templates.

The <pre> tag does not prevent comment tags to be interpreted as such, so the template does not show the tags and the text in between, even before "gives":

ac

gives:

ac
