Usage

This template is shortcut for <big>...</big> and makes the font larger. It takes one parameter: The text to enlarge.

  • {{big|text to make larger}}

If the value passed to the template contains a "=" (equals sign) character it must be done like so:

  • {{big|1=text to make larger}}

or the offending "=" character(s) must be replaced with &#61;.

This template is compatible with the {{Unicode}}, {{IPA}}, and similar templates:

  • {{big|{{unicode|ὡ}}}}
Example of typical usage
  • Blah blah blah {{big|æ}} versus {{big|œ}} blah blah.

This looks like:

  • Blah blah blah æ versus œ blah blah.
