How to format a page to match the original typography. See Help:Beginner's guide to typography for an overview.


Ellaborate typography


  • Q: Lower one of header or footer's left, center or right parts in relation to the others
    • A: Use <br> (the headers/footers are built as tables, so each part is a cell). Examples: 1, 2.


See more at Category:Formatting templates, Category:Typography templates, etc.

  • {{sc}}: small caps
  • {{uc}}: uppercase
  • {{font-size}}: useful as a complement to {{smaller}}, {{larger}}, {{x-larger}}, {{xx-larger}}, etc.
  • {{!lb}}: line break (only shown in the Page namespace)
  • {{hw}}, {{hws}}, {{hwe}}: for hyphenated words (only shown in the Page namespace)
  • {{sp}}: letter spacing (useful in combination with uppercase or small caps). Hardcoded, non-customizable spacing of 0.15em. For custom spacing, use {{lsp}}.
  • {{serif}} and other typeface templates
  • {{old style}}: for numbers with descenders (doesn't seem to work in Firefox for serif font family)
  • {{custom rule}}, {{***}} and {{separator}}: for ornaments / horizontal rulers (they support a |char parameter which can be combined with dingbats)
  • {{gap}}, {{line-height}} and {{DoubleHeightRow}} for adding blank space
  • {{SIC}}
  • {{nop}} and {{peh}}: paragraph break or hyphen at end of page (these usually get removed when pages are transcluded to the main namespace to produce flowing text)
  • {{illegible}}, {{redact}} and {{reconstruct}}
