Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The indenter Template:indent performs a newline and indents by a specified number of spaces. However, the spaces are not all the same size, but rather a mixture of en-size & em-size spaces that have been tested to work on a wide range of browsers. (To skip by n equal-size spaces, instead use {{in5|n}} which puts all as the standard-size " " space.)

Usage[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

The indentation spacing generated by Template:indent will match the alignment of a colon-shift (":") by using {{indent|5}}, or to match "::" then align by {{indent|10}}.

Usage: {{indent|# of spaces}}

  • Indents up to 30 spaces. (use {{in5|n}} to skip up to 50 spaces)
  • Indent differs from {{space}} only in that it automatically begins a wrapped-newline, then spaces over n spaces, whereas {{space}} spaces over n in the same (current) line.

Examples[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

The following are detailed examples, also comparing to the equivalent indentation generated if a colon-shift ":" were used instead.

Example 1 - Indenting by 5:
Some text.{{indent|5}}Some more text.


Results:
Some text.
     Some more text.

Example 2 - Alignment with ":" or "::" indentations:
: Line of colon-shifted text.
{{indent|5}}Line of indent-5-shifted text.
<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;Line of br-6-nbsp-shifted text.
<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Line of br-5-nbsp-shifted text.
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Line of br-5-nbsp-true-shifted text.
:: Line of 2-colon-shifted text.
{{space|10}}Line of space-10-shifted text.

Results:

Line of colon-shifted text.


     Line of indent-5-shifted text.
      Line of br-6-nbsp-shifted text.
     Line of br-5-nbsp-shifted text.
     Line of br-5-nbsp-true-shifted text.

Line of 2-colon-shifted text.

          Line of space-10-shifted text.

Note that if the prior line is already colon-shifted text, then using "{{indent|5}}" generates a blank line first, so instead, use "{{space|5}}" (or such) after a colon-shifted line.

Analysis of uneven spacing[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

The non-breaking "&nbsp;" is exactly the same size as a space (by definition, it must be the same), so it can be alternated with spaces to skip a wider area. Notice that neither {{indent}} nor {{space}} use true space-size, but rather mix en+em spaces, whereas "{{in5|n}}" will actually skip n count of spaces, as if inserting n repetitions of an "&nbsp;" space.

  • {{spaces}} - uses non-breaking spaces.
  • {{in5}} - skips up to 50 equal-size spaces as all en-size spaces.
