Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template inserts a "brace segment": part of a brace (curly bracket) that can be put into a table to span multiple items.


  • Parameter 1 determines the orientation of the brace: l (left - { ), r (right - } ), o (over - ⏞ ) or u (under - ⏟⏟ ).
  • Parameter 2 determines the part of the brace:
  • t: top end:
  • b: bottom end:
  • m: middle (for braces with odd number of sections):
  • mt: middle, top (for braces with even numbers of segments):
  • mb: middle, bottom (for braces with even numbers of segments):
  • s: span (between middle and end):
  • ht: half-brace top (for 2-segment braces)
  • hb: half-brace bottom (for 2-segment braces)
  • l: left end:
  • r: right end:
  • ml: middle, left (for braces with even numbers of segments):
  • mr: middle, right (for braces with even numbers of segments):
  • hl: half-brace left (for 2-segment braces)
  • hr: half-brace right (for 2-segment braces)
  • Parameter 3 is an optional width for the segment tiles (default is 25) in pixels. All tiles in one brace must be the same for alignment.
  • Note that the table needs to have zero padding and cell spacing. The template {{brace table parameters}} will set these for you.
  • In the case of horizontal (under and over) brace, left is the "top" and right the "bottom"
