Template:Pline/doc

From Wikisource
Jump to: navigation, search

This template expands to a bit of whitespace and a line number, which is formatted in small coloured text in order not to distract from the actual text of the poem or play. The line number also includes an id attribute, which can be used as a label to hyperlink directly to a particular line: [[Hellas#line300]]

{{pline|number}} gives:  number
  • Note: the contents doesn't have to be numerical.

Alignment[edit]

If a second parameter is given as "r", the line number will float right. This is only generally useful when the poem is enclosed in a limited-width environment, particularly {{block center}}, which "contracts" to the minimum width required by the contents.

If a second parameter is given as "l", the line number will float left, past the left margin of the text. The text will be right-aligned.

ID tags[edit]

If no id parameter is given, the "id" of the span will be "lineXXX", where XXX is the given line number. If id is given, the "id" will be that instead.
