Notes

Peer wikilinks
The wikilinks of substantive peers (or those in another kind of numbered succession) should always show that number (eg Richard, 1st Earl of Cornwall rather than Richard, Earl of Cornwall), unless other conventions say otherwise (such as that one should always see Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, never Prince Edward, 2nd Duke of Kent). Generally, use the article's title, omitting surplus fore- and surnames or disambiguation.

Microformats

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
  • deathplace
  • extended-address
  • family-name
  • fn (required)
  • given-name
  • honorific-prefix
  • honorific-suffix
  • label
  • locality
  • n
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
