Using example-formatting templates in generalBaguhin

The category of example-formatting templates is used frequently in non-mainspace general help pages such as Wikipedia:Manual of Style (MOS) when inline typeface changes are needed.

Padron:Strong

Padron:Strong; use {{tq}} instead.

For cases where the serif typeface is not desirable (e.g. in blocks of computer code), use {{bxt}}, which substitutes boldfacing, or {{mxt}}, which substitutes a mono-spaced font. For style examples that break to their own line (e.g. paragraphs), use {{xt2}}.

For examples of Padron:!xt, use {{!xt}}, {{!bxt}}, {{!mxt}}, or {{!xt2}}, respectively.

The {{xtd}} template exists for Padron:Xtg examples. Its alias {{xtg}} (for "grey") can be used to indicate uncertain, unavailable, disabled, lorem, etc., examples without implying deprecation. The bold, sans-serif equivalent is {{bxtd}} (and {{bxtg}} alias). The mono-spaced equivalent is {{mxtd}}.

The {{xtn}} template is for Padron:Xtn examples, and has no color change, but is otherwise identical to {{xt}}. It can be used with {{xt}} and {{!xt}} to indicate usage that is neither advised nor advised against or deprecated. The bold, sans-serif equivalent is {{bxtn}}.

ParametersBaguhin

  • |text here or |1=text here – The text to which to apply the markup. As with all templates, when the text has any equals characters ("="), explicitly prefix the text with |1= or the template will break.
  • |title=tooltip text here – Takes text, which cannot be marked up in any way, and displays it as a pop-up "tooltip" (in most browsers) when the cursor hovers over the span

AccessibilityBaguhin

The accompanying change in typeface to a serif or mono-spaced type style (as in example text) is to make it fully accessible for those with color blindness.

Keep accessibility more broadly in mind, and never construct examples such that a blind person, who may not be able to see the coloration, boldfacing, or monospace font change, cannot understand the examples. Especially indicate, with terms like "not", "don't", "wrong:", etc., that a negative example is a negative one, or with "deprecated", "avoid", etc., that deprecated material is deprecated.
