Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)


This template is used to present markup or code in a vertical format above the rendered output.


  • markup or m: Content of Markup cell
  • renders or r: Content of Renders as cell
  • title or t: Title of table; defaults to none
  • margin: Set table left margin in em
  • width: Table width; defaults to 90%
  • style: Additional CSS for the table

The Markup cell is pre-formatted with <pre> to retain newlines and spaces, but styled to allow content to wrap within the cell. It is usually desirable to escape the content of the Markup cell so that the markup is displayed by wrapping the markup in Template:Xtag. It is technically not possible to add this feature to the template.

In the Renders as cell, the content is usually the unescaped markup copied from the Markup cell. There are instances where this may differ:

  • If the first line includes wikimarkup that must start on a new line such as #, * or ; then use <nowiki /> before the first line.
  • Header markup such as == will show in the page table of contents; use {{fake heading}}.
  • When using {{reflist}} with no other parameters, use {{reflist|close=1}} to ensure that the reference list is closed.
  • Some templates will place the page in a maintenance category, which is usually undesired:
  • Some templates may have error checking that places the page in a maintenance category. Suppress the category as possible:
    • Template:Cs1 templates can suppress the maintenance category by setting |template doc demo=true.


The following meta-example uses {{markupv}} to create an example of using <score>...</score>:

|markup=<nowiki><score>\relative c' { c( b~ c b c b c b c~ c)}</score></nowiki>
|renders=<score>\relative c' { c( b~ c b c b c b c~ c)}</score>

It generates:

<score>\relative c' { c( b~ c b c b c b c~ c)}</score>
Renders as <score>\relative c' { c( b~ c b c b c b c~ c)}</score>


If you don't wrap the content of the markup cell in Template:Xtag, then any template markup will not be escaped, it will be expanded.

This example shows the markup for {{tl|tag}}:

Renders as {{tl|tag}}

HTML entities are parsed in the markup cell

Renders as &nbsp;&ndash;

To work around this, replace the & with &amp; thus &amp;nbsp; will show as &nbsp;


Simple examples:

'''Bold text'''
Renders as Bold text
''Italic text''
Renders as Italic text

Complex example: Note that the second argument to Template:Tl2 uses Template:Tl2 and Template:Tl2.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.{{#tag:ref|A footnote.<ref>A reference for the footnote.</ref>|group=nb}} The cow jumped over the moon.{{fact}}

== Notes ==

== References ==
Renders as The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.[nb 1] The cow jumped over the moon.Template:Fake citation needed

Template:Fake heading Template:Reflist

Template:Fake heading Template:Reflist

With title:

Foxes and dogs
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Renders as The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

When a template is enclosed within {{code}}, it shows the rendered HTML:

{{cite book |last=White |first=T. H. |title=The Book of Merlyn |year=1977}}
Renders as Template:Cite book
{{code|{{cite book |last=White |first=T. H. |title=The Book of Merlyn |year=1977}}}}
Renders as [[:Template:Cite book]]
