Font size templates



All Wikisource size templates are relative to the default size. There are two kinds of sizing template: inline and block templates. Inline templates are suitable for use within a paragraph, but can't handle paragraph breaks, and do not adjust line spacing. Block templates can handle paragraph breaks, and adjust line spacing, but are not suitable for use within a paragraph, as they will cause a paragraph break. See H:DIVSPAN for more details.

Font size definition by relative differences using words[edit]

Comment The line heights of fonts greater than 100% increase proportionally with the font size. The line heights of fonts less than 100% are not proportional but inherit the line height of the font at the 100% size. The smaller the font, the greater the distance between rows of text. For these, see: Fonts smaller than 100% with proportional line heights
