Template:Dialogue indented

From Wikisource
Jump to: navigation, search


This is a way to replicate the dialogue found in many memos, transcripts, plays, etc.

It can only do 100 lines of dialog. After that you have to start over with a new table.

Example:

This code:

{{dialogue indented
|CREON
|Now answer this plain question, yes or no. Wast thou acquainted with the interdict?
|ANTIGONE
|I knew, all knew; how should I fail to know?
|CREON
|And yet wert bold enough to break the law?
|ANTIGONE
|Yea, for these laws were not ordained of Zeus, 
|
|And she who sits enthroned with gods below,
|
|Justice, enacted not these human laws.
|
|Nor did I deem that thou, a mortal man,
|
|Could'st by a breath annul and override
|
|The immutable unwritten laws of Heaven.
}}

Now answer this plain question, yes or no. Wast thou acquainted with the interdict?
ANTIGONE I knew, all knew; how should I fail to know?
CREON And yet wert bold enough to break the law?
ANTIGONE Yea, for these laws were not ordained of Zeus,
And she who sits enthroned with gods below,
Justice, enacted not these human laws.
Nor did I deem that thou, a mortal man,
Could'st by a breath annul and override
The immutable unwritten laws of Heaven.
