[edit] Template documentation

1 Purpose

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:


2 Usage

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"
  ! Template documented?
  ! Template categorized?
  | {{Unknown}}
  | {{Yes}}

Template documented?Template categorized?
 ???  Yes 

2.1 Custom cell text

The question marks as the cell's content can be replaced with any text desired by assigning it to the value of the |1= parameter or passing it as the only unnamed parameter. For example, calling this template with either {{Unknown|TBD}} or {{Unknown|1=TBD}} formatting, as both produce the following table cell when transcluded and parsed:


2.2 Parameters

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 named parameters
1 plain text or wiki markup that overrides the default  ???  contents (may also be provided as only unnamed parameter)
align left or right align the cell contents to that horizontal edge, overriding the default center alignment
bgcolor changes the background color — values may be:
  • keywords like transparent or none (inheriting the surrounding background color or becoming white, respectively)
  • named CSS colors like moccasin or gainsboro
  • RGB hexadecimals, either short form like #ccc; or the long form #ffe228; (lowercase letters are preferred due to superior gzip compression, always terminated with a semicolon)
style any other CSS style elements desired beyond or instead of the default formatting, each one terminated with a semicolon

2.3 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 with a space and !important placed before the terminating semicolon.

style="background: #d3d3d3; color: #000; vertical-align: middle; text-align: center; font-weight: 800; font-size: 108%;"

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

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