Smaller[edit]

Sometimes one sees the header have different formatting than the body, often this is smaller text, italics or UC. While the latter two formats generally do not apply to page numbers, SMALLER often applies for the line. Currently one has to format each part of the running header to implement varieties of formatting, and it would be nice if there was a parameter that modified the text format of the whole header in one fell swoop, even if it was just smaller, that would be a big help. -- billinghurst (talk) 13:44, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

{{smaller block|{{running header|...}}}} will do the trick. Hesperian 04:04, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

3 part headers without a center don't clear[edit]

I noticed this while looking over Index:Tales of John Oliver Hobbes.djvu which uses a format like this and comes out pretty awful. This isn't intended, is it? Is there anything currently relying on this behavior? Prosody (talk) 23:10, 3 February 2014 (UTC)


I regularly find myself tempted to revert this template to a simple table. It would be so much simpler, easier to maintain, and it would work perfectly... only it wouldn't be principled — no true gentleman uses tables for layout. Hesperian 03:21, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
