This is the template documentation page for {{In5}}.
It is not intended to be viewed directly. If it uses variables, some links may appear broken. Do not replace these variables with hardcoded page names or URLs.

The indenter Template:in5 indents text by 5 spaces or the count specified by
parameter 1 (range: 1 to 50 spaces).

Usage:   {{in5}}           <--indents by 5 spaces
Usage:   {{in5|8}}         <--indents by 8 spaces
Usage:   {{in5|47}}       <--indents by 47

Spaces outside the double braces will add an extra space on either side,
such as the 12 spaces inserted by: " {{in5|10}} ".

NOTE: The name "in5" was chosen because other names were debated, such as
the name "in" being redefined as 6 different uses.

Examples[edit source | hide | hide all]

The following are examples showing larger amounts of spacing:

Example 1: xx{{in5|10}}yy{{in5|10}}zz, produces: xx          yy          zz
Example 2: xx{{in5|10}}yy{{in5|15}}zz, produces: xx          yy               zz
Example 3: aa{{in5|20}}bb{{in5|20}}cc, produces: aa                    bb                    cc
Example 4: "32.0{{in5|7}}"  produces: "32.0       "

The example 4 shows the ability to put trailing spaces, such as spaces after a number in a wikitable column (coded as: | 32.0{{in5}} ). Typical numbers (with "align=right"), in a table column, often appear crowded at the right-hand side, so appending "{{in5}}" can improve readability, in tables with lines between columns.

Universal template[edit source | hide]

This Template:in5 is intended as a universal template, with the same name on all Wikipedia sites. The name "in5" with the digit "5" is unlikely to conflict with other-language Wikipedias. Care must be taken not to name a universal template with a name that would be an awkward or peculiar word in the other languages. However, in some cases, a universal template might need a different name in a few conflicting languages.

Comparison with letter-spacing[edit source | hide]

To insert spacing between each consecutive letter pair of any text, then span style="letter-spacing:value unit" can be used. For example, with <span style="letter-spacing:1.2em">, spanning the text "example", it would look like:  "example". The spacing value may express any number from 0 on; also fractions like .45 are possible, and the unit may be "em" or any standard measurement unit (pt, px, cm, mm, in).
