Use[edit]

This template creates one sortable cell of a sortable table displaying a measurement formatted in international feet (of exactly 0.3048 meter) followed with the same measurement formatted in meters. This template is an alternative to Template:Epi/moft for the United States.

The syntax of this template is:

{{epi/ftom|var1|a=|d=|l=|p=|r=|s=}}

where:

  • var1 is a real number representing the measurement in meters (may not contain a thousands separator), # for sea level, or NA if not available.
  • a is an optional alignment parameter:
    • a=left yields left alignment
    • a=center yields center alignment (default)
    • a=right yields right alignment
  • d is an optional integer representing the number of decimal places of feet to display (default=0)
  • e is an optional integer representing the number of decimal places of meters to display (default=d)
  • l is an optional lines parameter:
    • l=1 yields a single-line display
    • l=2 yields a double-line display (default)
  • p is an optional prefix to display before each number, e.g. about , ~, >, < (default is no prefix)
  • r is an optional integer representing the number of rows to span (default=1)
  • s is an optional style parameter:
    • s= yields regular style (default)
    • s='' yields italic style
    • s=''' yields bold style
    • s=''''' yields bold italic style
