Multiple image on Spanish wikibook[edit source]

I am having issues when I am trying to copy the template for a multiple image in English into a Wikibook in Spanish (I am actually translating the page and I would like that it appears in the same format in both languages). Being more specific, I would like my images correspoding to 'Sistemas de retroalimentación' and 'sistemas de compensación' in the Wikibook Introducción a los sistemas de control to appear as they do in the English version 'feedback sistemas' and feedforward systems' Introduction to control systems.

Thanks! --CarrotsMitHummus

Links and tables[edit source]

Hi, Documents for links indicate that text with an alt parameter will be displayed when a File is not available from Commons. In Oberon/ETH_Oberon/Tutorial/Mouse under heading "Select - Mouse Right key - MR" "File:OberonMouse4.png" is not available. Shouldn't the alt text be displayed?

At the bottom of the same page are two tables; aqua and yellow. How can the yellow table be located beside the aqua rather than below?

Heading styles[edit source]

Just initialized the Compiler page in the Oberon tutorial. I expect higher level headings to be more prominent than lower level headings. For example, "Tutorial objective" and "Introduction" (level 2) should be more prominent than the subsection heading "A first example" (level 3). In appearance, prominence is reversed. The two levels are rendered in a similar font size but level 3 is bold. Can someone explain? Can this be corrected in MediaWiki? Thx, ...
