Use, Limitations, Parameters and Options[edit]


Use[edit]


The template has one parameter: Content; unformatted text for the box. The default state produces a pale blue band across the page for a centered Courier text entry; it is useful to emphasise a single code line.

The options can be used in a more elaborate way to assemble a page with contiguous coloured background sections; see the example, which includes an image. The code to call the template into use and the result of doing so is seen below:

{{block|ta=left|ff=Arial|background=Lightyellow|color=blue|[[image:rose.jpg|left|150px]]This is a block of fictitious text {{lorem ipsum}}}}{{block|background=papayawhip|{{lorem ipsum}}}}{{block|ta=left|fs=12pt|ff=serif|background=mistyrose|{{lorem ipsum}}}}

Limitations[edit]


It is not possible for the parameter text to start with a wikitext heading, (==Heading==); use the HTML form instead, (<h2>Heading</h2>.

A Wikitext table will not render at all well. Use an HTML table instead and avoid having the table at the start of the parameter.

At times which are not yet clarified, using the named parameter form, (1= The parameter text...), works well when the unnamed equivalent,(The parameter text...) does not.
