Template:Rule


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

Usage

This template inserts a black horizontal rule. It should be used in transcriptions in preference to wiki syntax "----", which inserts a rule but in a lighter colour. Furthermore there can be no certainty that the rendering of "----" will not change in the future. Please check for any [X]HTML 5 issues as well.

For example

{{rule}}

produces


The common case of a double-rule can be achieved by

{{rule}}{{rule}}

which produces




Width

A width may optionally be provided, in em or by % in which case a black horizontal rule of that width is centered on the line.

For example

{{rule|width=12em}}

and

{{rule|12em}}

both produce


Height

Height is provided by the named height parameter:

{{rule|height=3px}}

Alignment

In rare cases where the left or right alignment is required, the align parameter may be used.

Example

{{rule|6em|align=left}}

produces


Top/bottom margins

If the rule has wider padding around it, this can be set with margin_tb:

Example

{{center|
Foo
{{rule|margin_tb=2em}}
Bar
}}

produces

Foo


Bar

Class
