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

UsageEdit

This template renders text in a blackletter ("fraktur" or "gothic") typeface using webfonts.

{{blackletter|Text}}

Alphabet: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

TypefaceEdit

This template uses the UnifrakturMaguntia font, which is released under the SIL Open Font License.

By default, this template uses optional modern glyphs for certain letters rather than the standard glyphs for this font. See "Modes" for details.

ExamplesEdit

{{blackletter|Hello, world}}

Hello, world

{{blackletter|{{lorem ipsum}}}}

ModesEdit

Optionally certain glyphs can be altered, via different modes, to use a more modern version than is standard for this font. Mode 0 is the default; mode 1 uses the standard glyphs for the font.

Inline variantEdit

The template {{Blackletter/inline}} (or convenience abbreviation {{Bl/il}}) takes the same parameters, but has an artificially short line height to integrate it in a paragraph's text without creating a potentially taller line for some users. This is best used in passages which have a book's normal typeface with only a little bit of blackletter.

The following example paragraph begins with this inline version, then has a simulated exaggeration of the problem it is intended to avoid. The second paragraph is a demonstration that a longer passage likely appears unobjectionable in standards-compliant browsers (see {{Line-height}} for the technical reason); however, since this doesn't respect the font's recommended spacing, avoid this unless similarity to nearby text is the required effect.

{{blackletter/inline|Even}} {{lorem ipsum}} <span style="vertical-align: text-top;">{{blackletter/inline|line-height=200%|Uneven}}</span> {{lorem ipsum}}

{{blackletter/inline|{{lorem ipsum}}}}
