Template:SPW

Description

Use this template to create a reference list in small font for an article. Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always be used for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.<ref>I am a reference</ref>

Dependencies

CSS used

.references-small { font-size: 90%; }

Syntax

Type {{#ifeq:|code|<code>}}{{{{#if:|{{{prefix}}}:}}reflist{{#if:...||<...>}}{{#if:||<{{{3}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{4}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{5}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{6}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{7}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{8}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{9}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{10}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{11}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{12}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{13}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{14}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{15}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{16}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{17}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{18}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{19}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{20}}}>}}{{#if:||<{{{21}}}>}}}}{{#ifeq:|code|}}</code> where you would normally type <references/>. If used with no parameters, it will produce a reference list with a single column.

Multiple columns

Using {{reflist|2}} will create a two-column reference list, and {{reflist|3}} will create a three-column list. Three-column lists are inaccessible to users with smaller/laptop monitors and should be avoided.

Using {{reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allow the browser to automatically choose the number of columns based on the width of the web browser. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width of the references on the page.

Note: multiple columns currently render properly only in Mozilla Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers and Safari 3, though the feature is included in CSS3 so it should work for a larger number of browsers in the future.

Sample output

{{reflist}} gives...

<references />
