This template surrounds a character string with single quotes (' '), and inserts:

  • a narrow non-breaking space (U+202F) between the quote and the character string, except at the ending quote when the string ends with a punctuation character such as a comma (,), a period (.), an ellipsis (…), a colon (:), a semicolon (;).
  • 1/8th of an em in the case of a ! or a ?.

NOTE: This template formerly used ‘ and ’ (curly quotes) instead of ' (straight quotes), but this usage is deprecated per Wikisource's current style guidelines
