The cited cases section should include only a few of the most important and perhaps it should be changed to include links not made in the document itself, including future cases that cite this one. This template should also order case reference in a list automatically generating links.--Metal.lunchbox 21:22, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Changed cited cases to linked cases. documents themselves already make tons of citations to cases. can figure out how to automatically make links out of list items, but all it takes is a few bracketts.--Metal.lunchbox 03:19, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Need to add function for per curiam majority so as not to have confusing dead link to opinion of the court--Metal.lunchbox 21:06, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Issue when combined with <pages>[edit]

There's a compatibility issue between this template (as well as {{USSCcase2}}) and <pages> syntax. If <br /> tag is removed from immediately below these templates on Kelo v. New London and Kelo v. New London/Opinion of the Court, and if the user is using Firefox or Chrome, the links in the USSC templates cannot be clicked. Any ideas? —Spangineerwp (háblame) 22:37, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

See this old version of Kelo v. New London to see what I'm talking about. —Spangineerwp (háblame) 22:50, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunately I'm not running either browser so I'm of no help here - works fine. I'll point it out to Stephen if he comes around later tonight. At any rate, both templates are fairly old & clunky at this point and most likely need to be replaced for something more elegant as well as streamlined.

Your edit broke the template for me, sadly. I agree with you on replacing these... perhaps a horizontal bar? Hmmm.... —Spangineerwp (háblame) 23:36, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
The temp-templates look like crap in plain old IE. This is another Firefox/IE duality of displays issue I guess. My best guess is that the indented-page class is inheriting the style parameters of the template prematurely but w/o running one of the other browsers I am only speculating.

Hmmm.... Kelo v. New London looks about the same to me in both IE and Chrome right now (with {{USSCcase/temp}} in place). What don't you like about it? (maybe better to respond at Wikisource_talk:WikiProject_U.S._Supreme_Court_cases#An_attempt_at_new_USSCcase_templates) —Spangineerwp (háblame) 17:48, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
It's the usual small square boxes instead of spaces before and after the mdashes.
What happens to the original template's link display when the indented page div class is temporarily removed, Still no longer clickable ???
Also - I tried to fix that anoying line break between pp. 506 & 507 George Orwell III (talk) 18:47, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
I don't think those spaces are a browser issue; I wasn't seeing boxes in IE8 on my home computer nor IE7 on my work computer. Anyway, just removed them. What do you think of setting it off with colors (look through the history of Template:USSCcase/temp)? —Spangineerwp (háblame) 18:56, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Looks much, much better & and no more random unicode characters. I'd pull it out of the notes field though - it starts to lose it's "pop" when the amount of justices starts to force a wrap to a second line. George Orwell III (talk) 19:10, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
