Problems with redirected pages

Jump to: navigation, search

The problem I was talking about is related but distinct. It concerns the Input and Output templates. With those there can't even be a single colon, since then lines other than the first end up outside of the box. If you write

{{Input|1=1. line
2. line}}

you get

1. line
2. line

but precede it with a single colon like this

:{{Input|1=1. line
2. line}}

and you get

1. line
2. line

Yes, that seems to be so. We could easily get some indent into the style for the templates, I think. Do you think it's worth while? It's relatively rare that the full width is used anyway, so I don't see that it would create too much problem.

I think that the framing and background colour makes input and output stand out nicely. On the other hand some writers seems to prefer indentation as well, and maybe it is a bit more stylish. If it can be done without causing problems, it may be a good idea.

I'll ask pipesmoker about this - he does a lot of the styling work for us.

:{{Input|1=<nowiki>1. line
2. line</nowiki>}} 

should do the job:

1. line
2. line
