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


This template is used to format text that is cursive or handwritten.

Note on transcribing handwriting[edit]

Wikisource transcriptions do not include notes or markings that are written on the page after publication. We only include the text as published. That being said, there are some situations where cursive text is part of the work itself, such as:

  • Manuscripts and facsimiles of manuscripts (including handwritten letters)
  • Cursive-style fonts used within a published text, either as a decorative header, an illustration, or otherwise

In these situations, the {{cursive}} template may be appropriate.

Note on font display[edit]

This template uses the cursive CSS value to format the display of text. The font currently used is provided by a user's web browser, so rendering of its display is uncertain.

A cursive font to be used as a default has been requested.


{{cursive|Curlicue Display}} gives:
Curlicue Display
