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

Below is documentation copied from Template:Nowrap.

{{Nowrap}} stops wrapping of specific text. It prevents word wraps (line breaks) within text or inside a link which contains spaces or hyphens ("-"). The size of the nowrapped text becomes the minimum width of that paragraph. Before you use this template you might want to read up on Wikipedia:Line-break handling.

Usage

{{nowrap|these words stay together}}
{{nowrap|a, b, c, or d.}}
{{nowrap| merry-go-round }}
{{nowrap| [[4-part harmony]] }}
{{nowrap| [[w:Cascading Style Sheets|CSS]] }}
{{nowrap| [[#Examples|Examples section]] }}

Examples

"They held {{nowrap|10 kg (22 lb)}} in total."


May render like this:

They held 10 kg (22 lb)
in total.


Or like this:

They held
10 kg (22 lb) in total.


But not render like this:

They held 10 kg (22
lb) in total.
"He encountered {{nowrap|a tiger}} in the woods."


May render like this:

He encountered a tiger
in the woods.


Or like this:

He encountered
a tiger in the woods.


But not like this:

He encountered a
tiger in the woods.

Technical details

The actual code that does the job is this HTML + CSS code:

<span class="nowrap">This text will not wrap</span>

Spaces at the beginning or end of the text will fall outside the no-wrap tag in the rendered text due to Wikimedia rendering mechanisms.
