This template does nothing.
More exactly, it outputs the null string. It's useful for programming advanced templates.

It often is used within a template to the right of an equals sign. It may also be used in a template to disambiguate parsing of braces.

Alternatives

{{Null}} redirects here. It's also possible to use {{ns:0}}, the empty/void/null string for the main namespace.

It can be used in place of <nowiki/> to break character sequence parsing, for example {{nowrap|{''a''}{{null}}}} to force the first closing brace to be treated as part of the template parameter instead of as the end of the template expression.
