Example text

[edit] Template documentation

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. This template is used frequently in the Manual of Style when inline typeface changes are needed. For cases where the serif typeface is not desirable (e.g. in blocks of computer code), use {{bxt}}, which substitutes boldfacing. For style examples that break to their own line (e.g. paragraphs), use {{xt2}}. Template:Strong

For examples of bad/wrong style, in red, use {{!xt}} (or {{!bxt}}) and {{!xt2}}, respectively.

The bold, sans-serif equivalent is {{bxtd}}. The {{xtd}} template exists for Template:Xtg examples. Its alias {{xtg}} (for "grey") can be used to indicate uncertain, unavailable, disabled, lorem, etc., examples without implying deprecation. The bold, sans-serif equivalent is {{bxtd}} (and {{bxtg}} alias).

The {{xtn}} template is for Template:Xtn examples, and has no color change, but is otherwise identical to {{xt}}. It can be used with {{xt}} and {{!xt}} to indicate usage that is neither advised nor advised against or deprecated. The bold, sans-serif equivalent is {{bxtn}}.

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]

What you write
...for example, {{xt|1=''T'' = 293.15 K}}, {{xt|1=''m'' = 5.4 kg}}.
What you get
...for example, T = 293.15 K, m = 5.4 kg.
