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

This template flags potential font/encoding issues for users when an article contains text which may not be rendered correctly on out-of-the-box installations of current operating systems.

Use this only in articles in which the presence of special characters is likely to confuse readers of affected articles; it is not needed on articles where special characters are ordinarily expected (mathematics articles, for instance).


Place at the top of affected articles, below any infobox. Each particular language should have a separate template that calls SpecialChars with the following parameters (as appropriate for that language).

{{Special characters
| image      = 
| alt        = 
| link       = 
| special    = 
| fix        = 
| characters = 
| error      = 

(optional) Just the title (no 'image:' prefix) of an image of the characters, ideally legible at 65x50px and either square or slightly wider than tall.
(optional) The alt text for the image, for visually-impaired readers. See ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ:ALT. If the image is merely some text, the alt text should simply repeat that text.
(optional) Name of the article that the image should link to. By default, the image is considered to be purely decorative and does not link to any article. If this parameter is specified, the alt parameter should also be specified.
The languages or special content the page includes. Free-form, so you can specify as many as you like. Remember to link to the root pages for the characters / language.
Link to a page with the solution (installing fonts etc). This should just be the title of the fix page, unlinked.
The specific type of characters that might be missing (i.e. kanji, kana). Free-form, remember to use links.
The rendering error observed (defaults to mojibake). Free-form.
