Table tips:

For collapse border table with indent e.g. {{ts|ba|bc|margin-left:45px}}
HTML table with collapsed border: <table border=1; style="border: 1px solid black; border-collapse: collapse;">
Column or Rowspan with border: colspan="2" style="border: 1px solid black;"
Row height:|- style=line-height:85%;
Hanging indent (first line left) <td style="width: 50%; vertical-align: top; padding-left:1.0em; text-indent:-1.0em;"> (padding-left:2.0em; for 2nd column for gap between columns.)
Table with border-all header and column rules {| class="tablecolhdborder" (and use {{Ts|fwn}} for non-bold header test if desired) e.g. Paestum

Useful templates: {{Template:EB1911 contributor table B/entry ‎

{{EB1911 Page Heading| e.g. {{EB1911 Page Heading| |Blantyre|Blasphemy|43}}

{{EB1911 article link| {{tl:EB1911 fine print/s}} and /e for fine print in EB1911

{{Font-variant normal| particularly for use in Contributor table to bypass the default small-caps

{{tl:Dotted TOC line}}

{{EB1911 Shoulder Heading|Classification of the phenomena of life.|align=left}} (e.g.)

{{EB1911 footer initials|Leonard James Spencer|L. J. S.}}

or just : e.g. {{EB1911 MG}}   where MG is the author initials. See Category:EB1911 contributor templates for available contributor templates

See for list of authors (Vol 1) for list of authors (Vol 5) etc.

{{EB1911 Coordinates|11|12|13|E.}} for 11° 12′ 13″ — or shorthand {{11co}}

{{brace2}} template which gives:  ; or <math>\big\{</math> <math>\Big\{</math> for narrower spacing

{{block center|<poem> ... for centered poem-style

Use of a correction: e.g. <span style="border-bottom: 1px dashed red;" title="amended from 'magna'">magma</span> — magma or
<ins class="correction" title="'situtated' in original">situated</ins> or
Use SIC template: {{SIC|situtated|situated}} → situtated
