Purpose

To show deadweight tonnage, whether expressed in metric or long tons, in a consistent manner. Also to introduce the units used and the intended meaning of the abbreviation DWT the first time it is used in an article.

Usage

{{DWT|number|unit|disp=|link=}}
Parameters
number: numerical value of the deadweight tonnage;
unit: specifies the units in which the dead weight tonnage is measured; use long or metric;
disp: controls how the template will render in the page:
|disp= when empty or omitted, displays the abbreviated form:
{{DWT|36,000|metric|disp=}} → 36,000 t DWT
|disp=long creates a verbose description suitable for the first occurrence on a page. Equivalent to the deprecated |first=yes;
{{DWT|36,000|metric|disp=long}} → 36,000 tonnes deadweight (DWT)
|disp=adj creates the adjectival form:
{{DWT|36,000|metric|disp=adj}} → 36,000-tonne deadweight (DWT)
link: controls when the template output is linked to the deadweight tonnage article
|link= when empty or omitted, links to the deadweight tonnage article; this is the default;
{{DWT|36,000|metric|disp=long|link=}} → 36,000 tonnes deadweight (DWT)
|link=off instances of the rendered template are not linked to the deadweight tonnage article:
{{DWT|36,000|metric|disp=long|link=off}} → 36,000 tonnes deadweight (DWT)
first: (deprecated) controls how the template will render in the page:
|first= (deprecated) when empty or omitted, displays the abbreviated form:
{{DWT|36,000|metric|first=}} → 36,000 t DWT
|first=yes (deprecated) creates a verbose description suitable for the first occurrence on a page. Equivalent to |disp=long;
{{DWT|36,000|metric|first=yes}} → 36,000 metric tons deadweight (DWT)
