{{{1}}}

{{Smallcaps}} will display the lowercase part of your text as typographical small caps.

This template should be used sparingly, as markup should be kept simple. Ideally, this template should only be used by templates. In particular, it should not be used for any of the following:

  • Name/surname disambiguation; in most cases these should be presented in regular title case.
  • Acronyms; standard capital letters should be used.
  • All-caps trademarks; these should be presented in regular title case.

Usage[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Your source text is not altered in the output, only the way it is displayed on the screen: a copy-paste of the text will give the small caps sections in their original form; similarly, an older or non-CSS browser will only display the original text on screen. This can be seen as a problem, solved with {{sc}}.

Code
{{Smallcaps|Your Text in 4004 bc}}
Displayed
Your Text in 4004 bc
Pasted
Your Text in 4004 bc

Notes[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

  • Diacritics (å, ç, é, ğ, ı, ñ, ø, ş, ü, etc.) are handled. However, because the job is performed by each reader's browser, inconsistencies in CSS implementations can lead to some browsers not converting certain rare diacritics.
  • Use of this template does not generate any automatic categorization. As with most templates, if the argument contains an = sign, the sign should be replaced with {{=}}, or the whole argument be prefixed with 1=. And for wikilinks, you need to use piping. There is a parsing problem with MediaWiki which causes unexpected behavior when a template with one style is used within a template with another style.
  • There is a problem with dotted and dotless I. {{Lang|tr|{{Smallcaps|ı i}}}} gives you ı i, although the language is set to Turkish.
  • When used in templates that support COinS, such as most citation templates, the template markup will be included in the COinS metadata. This means that reference management software such as Zotero will store the markup. For example, if {{smallcaps}} is used to format the name Bloggs, Joe in {{cite journal}}, then Zotero will store the name as <span style="font-variant:small-caps;">Bloggs, Joe</span>.

Reasons to use small caps[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Small caps are useful for encyclopedical and typographical uses including:

To lighten ALL-CAPS words or pronounceable acronyms
  • The biblical "[[The LORD|সাঁচ:LORD]]" (instead of LORD or Lord) or "Lord সাঁচ:GOD" as written in the King James Bible and such
  • The acronyms UNESCO (instead of UNESCO or Unesco) or UNICEF
  • The trademark TIME (instead of TIME or Time)
To lighten ALL-CAPS surnames mandated by citation styles such as Harvard
  • Piccadilly has been compared to "a Parisian boulevard" (DICKENS 1879).
  • DICKENS, C., Jr (1879). "Piccadilly" in Dickens's Dictionary of London. London: C. Dickens.[1]
To disambiguate Western names and surnames at a glance
To disambiguate Eastern surnames and given names at a glance

Technical[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

Technically, the template merely wraps the standard:

<span style="font-variant:small-caps;"> ... </span>

(The "font-variant:small-caps;text-transform:lowercase" has not been used because it does not work at least in Internet Explorer 5 and 6, which are still fairly common browsers.)

Suppressing small caps[সম্পাদনা কৰক]

If you wish to suppress the display of small caps in your browser, as a logged in user, you can make an edit to your common.css reading

span.smallcaps { font-variant: normal !important; }
