[edit] Template documentation

This template creates a table cell with a light grey background and black, larger heavy text which defaults to a triple question mark, as seen above. It is designed to generate a uniform appearance for common cell values in feature and comparison tables with minimal effort, alongside similar templates like these (each a link to its own template page):


The template will only function properly when used inside of the standard wikicode for tables, following the pipe character(s) which indicate the start of a new table cell. In practice, it looks like this when editing and then when parsed:

 {| class="wikitable"
  ! scope="col" | Template documented?
  ! scope="col" | Template categorized?
  | {{Unknown}}
  | {{Yes}}

Template documented? Template categorized?
 ???  Yes

Custom text

The triple question marks that are the cell's default contents can be replaced with any text desired, simply by assigning it as the value of the |1= parameter or passing it as the only unnamed parameter. For example, calling this template as either {{Unknown|T.B.D.}} or {{Unknown|1=T.B.D.}} both produce the following table cell:



Changes to the template's appearance when parsed are accomplished by adding parameters to the template call in the form of {{Unknown|name=value}}. Use as many or as few as needed to accomplish the desired appearance.

All available template parameters
Name Value
|1= Replaces the default ??? cell contents, can include wiki markup syntax (may also be provided as the only unnamed parameter)
|align= Aligns the cell contents to either of the horizontal margins, rather than the default center alignment; valid values are left or right
|bgcolor= Specify a different background color — values may be:
  • CSS3 keywords like transparent or none (inheriting the surrounding background color or becoming white, respectively)
  • Named CSS3 colors like moccasin or gainsboro
  • RGB or RGBA hexadecimal values, in either the short (#ccc;) or long (#ffe228;) forms, always terminated with a semicolon (lowercase letters are preferred due to superior gzip compression)
|style= Any other CSS3 inline style elements desired, in addition to or instead of, the default formatting (each one terminated with a semicolon)

Default style

This template uses the following CSS elements as its defaults. Those without an explicit override parameter above can still be changed, if necessary, by adding them as a value for the |style= parameter and affixing them with a space and !important placed before the terminating semicolon.

<td style="background-color: #d3d3d3; color: black; font-size: 1.08em; font-weight: 800; padding: 0.2em 0.67em; text-align: center; vertical-align: middle;">

An example of such an override (in this instance changing the font-weight parameter, which controls the level of typeface boldness, to the light semi-bolded value of 500) would look like:

{{Unknown|style=font-weight: 500 !important;}}  which then appears as
