DocumentationEdit

This template simplifies formatting text that has letter-spacing.

The shorthand of this template is {{lsp}} or {{lp}}.

There is also a shorthand named {{sp}} that only takes one parameter and always uses the spacing .15em.

ParametersEdit

  • 1: The letter spacing. Can be left blank for the default of 0.15em. Always use text-relative sizes like em, not px, because px will not adjust itself if the text size changes. (See H:PXWIDTH for more details).
  • 2: The text to be spaced.
  • 3: Following un-spaced text. Useful for following punctuation that butts up against the last character of the spaced text. Optional.
  • 4 and 5: Another spaced/unspaced pair. Can be useful for certain headings where there are two un-spaced punctuation marks (e.g. "Chap. VII."). If 4 is a space, use  , or it will be removed by the template argument parser.

ExamplesEdit

SpacingEdit

Example: Default/explicit spacing (0.15em)

* {{letter-spacing||your text goes here}}
* {{letter-spacing|0.15em|your text goes here}}
  • your text goes here
  • your text goes here

Example: Custom spacing 1.5em)

{{letter-spacing|1.5em|your text goes here}}

your text goes here

Last charactersEdit

If you need to exclude the last character(s) of spaced text (usually due to excess padding) but still want these characters to be wrapped (usually for clearer syntax), you can use a third unnamed parameter, which simply passes its input as-is.

Furthermore, you can use the fourth and fifth parameters for a subsequent spaced section (this is sometimes useful for cases like "Chap. II.").

In the following examples, the coloured boxes show the extend of the "spaced" text.

Comparison of syntax appearance:

These examples produce the same output, but the template syntax is clearer in the second:

{{letter-spacing|1.5em|192}}2.

{{letter-spacing|1.5em|192|2.}}

{{letter-spacing|1.5em|Cha}}p.{{letter-spacing|1.5em| I}}I.

{{letter-spacing|1.5em|Cha|p.| I|I.}}

1922.
