Template:Font-size


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

PurposeEdit

This template simplifies formatting text that has a specified font-size in line.

ExamplesEdit

BasicEdit

{{font-size|150%|font-size}}

displays:

font-size

StyleEdit

{{font-size|150%|style=color:#FF0000|RED}}

displays:

RED

Usage notesEdit

  • sizes expressed as a percentage or in 'em' will give the best results
  • using a size of 100% allows the template to change only the color
  • if the text being resized contains an equal sign it needs to be written as {{=}}

All Wikisource size templates are relative to the default size. There are two kinds of sizing template: inline and block templates. Inline templates are suitable for use within a paragraph, but can't handle paragraph breaks, and do not adjust line spacing. Block templates can handle paragraph breaks, and adjust line spacing, but are not suitable for use within a paragraph, as they will cause a paragraph break.

Font size definition by relative differences using wordsEdit

Comment Please note that none of these fonts have proportional line height to the font size. Line height is only relevant with fonts smaller than 100%. For these, see:Fonts smaller than 100% with proportional line heights
