This experimental template will add a reference to the species name as a floated div. If it shows promise, it will be created as a "proper" template (with /doc, /sandbox, etc.), otherwise it will be quietly deleted. I will experiment with it on this page as well as on pages of Field Notes of Junius Henderson/Notebook 1. Since this is temporarily a taxon definition and sandbox page, use purge to purge this page after editing it.

Things to do:

  1. Continue 'tagging' taxa in Field Notes of Junius Henderson/Notebook 1 until we're sure this is useful.
  2. Create another template ({{TaxonLatin}}?) which is identical to this template, except that names are italicized in the inline-box on the right. So people would use {{taxon|Papilionoidea|butterfly}}, but {{TaxonLatin|Panthera tigris|tyger}}. If that makes sense.

Current usage (likely to change very, very quickly):

And two disjoined paragraphs:

On walking through the zoo, we saw tigerWikispecies-logo.svgCommons-logo.svg tigers and lionWikispecies-logo.svgCommons-logo.svg lions and monkeyWikispecies-logo.svgCommons-logo.svg monkeys. And my personal favourite, Parastratiosphecomyia stratiosphecomyioidesWikispecies-logo.svgCommons-logo.svg Parastratiosphecomyia stratiosphecomyioides!
But the best part was the gazelleWikispecies-logo.svgCommons-logo.svg gazelles!
