{{tag|tagname [|type] [|content=text] [|attribs=attributes and values]}}

A markup tag is an open < and a close > angle brackets and the content within them, in a markup language, as XML or HTML:

For example, the <title> tag provides a title for the Web page.

This template provides a quick way to mention a markup-style tag in a preformatted way. Mainly used in discussion/help pages.

ParametersEdit

Required parameters shown in bold italics.

|1=  (tagname above) 
The XML/HTML tag's name (e.g. code, ref).
|2=  (type above) 
To indicate which of the tag's types is/are presented:
p  (pair) (default) 
A matching pair of open/start and close/end tags (e.g. <div>...</div>).
To suppress the ellipsis ("...") between the tags, add an empty |content= parameter (for example, <div></div>).
o  (open
An open/start tag (e.g. <span>).
c  (close
A close/end tag (e.g. </span>).
e  (empty)  or  s  (single)  or  v  (void
An empty element, formed with a single self-terminating tag (e.g. <hr />); in HTML5 these are now known as "void" elements, though "empty" is the more common term.
|content= 
Text to place between open/start and close/end tags.
|attribs= 
Attributes and values to be included as part of an open/start tag (this parameter can also be called |params=).
|wrap=yes 
Disable nowrap for long samples, so allowing wraps (line breaks).
|link=yes 
Link to the element's entry at the HTML element article, e.g.:
     {{Tag|del|link=y}}
produces:
     <del>...</del>
This is only for HTML elements; the page is hard-coded, so it cannot be used for, e.g., XML elements from a particular schema. If desired, a feature for specifying the link page can be added.
