Template:Uppercase

(Redirected from Template:Uc)
Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

UsageEdit

This template styles text in uppercase.

  • Use {{uppercase|text}} for a single word or phrase.
    • The shortcut redirects {{UC}} and {{uc}} may be used.
  • Use {{uppercase block|block}} where an entire paragraph, section or block of text is to be made upper case.
    • The shortcut redirect {{ucb}} may be used.

Note on proper usageEdit

Do not use "{{uppercase|example}}" where the uppercase content "EXAMPLE" is required. Use it only where the required content is "example" but the required style in which it is to be rendered is uppercase. In particular, words that should be normally capitalised (e.g. proper nouns like names) should still be capitalised even if they are inside this template.

Because "{{uppercase|example}}" affects only the style and not the underlying content, it will be rendered as "EXAMPLE" by renderers that support styles, but it may be treated as "example" in other situations, such as case-sensitive text searches, copy-pasting of raw text, reading by screen-readers, etc.

An example of correct usage is in books where the first word of a chapter is capitalised for purely stylistic reasons; for example, Page:Watch and Ward (Boston, Houghton, Osgood and Company, 1878).djvu/8.

Code Displays Copy-pastes as
{{uc|Albert Einstein}} Albert Einstein Albert Einstein
{{uc|albert einstein}} albert einstein albert einstein
