Purpose[edit]

This template simplifies resizing extended selections of text. In contrast to {{font-size}}, it makes sure the line-height is adjusted proportionally to the font size.

Example[edit]

The effect of the template is per word, sentence or paragraph.

One of the planets that were known in ancient times is so difficult to observe as Mercury, and none presents so many obstacles to the study of its orbit and physical constitution. As to its orbit, Mercury is the only planet the course of which seems even now to have partly cut loose from the laws of universal gravitation, and the theory of which, although well built up by the genius of Leverrier, is still in considerable disagreement with the observations. The little we know of its physical construction is derived from the observations made a hundred years ago by Schroeter at Lilienthal. A telescopic examination of this planet is really a difficult affair.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Sizes expressed as a percentage or in 'em' will give the best results
  • If the text being resized contains an equal sign it needs to be written as {{=}}
  • The template does not seem to work reliably across paragraphs, so for best results it should be applied paragraph by paragraph when multiple adjacent paragraphs need to be resized.

See also[edit]


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.

Font size definition by relative differences using words[edit]

Comment Please note that none of these fonts have proportional line height to the font size. Line height is only relevant with fonts smaller than 100%. For these, see:Fonts smaller than 100% with proportional line heights
