Note: This template (in its current state) will link properly if and only if the {{ROOTPAGENAME}} of the Wikisource article matches that of the English Wikipedia page exactly! This template cannot determine the existence of the Wikipedia article, so it is imperative that you test the "Wikipedia article" link (Ctrl+Click to open a new tab or window) before committing your changes.
