Template:Big

{{{1}}}

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

Usage

Since <big>...</big> is obsolete, this template may be used as a replacement for presentation markup.

It takes one parameter: The text to enlarge.

  • {{big|text to make larger}}

If the value passed to the template contains an "=" (equals sign) character it must be done like so:

  • {{big|1=text to make larger}}

or the offending "=" character(s) must be replaced with &#61;.

This template is compatible with the {{IPA}}, and similar templates:

  • {{big|{{IPA|ὡ}}}}

Example of typical usage:

  • Blah blah blah {{big|æ}} versus {{big|œ}} blah blah.

This looks like:

  • Blah blah blah æ versus œ blah blah.
