  • When the parameter is "A" (or À: with or without diacritics), the block is added "Letter A with diacritics"
  • {{Latin script|A}}

Adding the block "Letters with diacritic ^"

  • When the parameter has a diacritic e.g. Â, the block "All letters with diacritic ^ (circumflex)" is shown.
  • When the parameter "show diacritic=" is set, that block will show: {{Latin script|A|show diacritic=grave}}
  • {{Latin script|A|show diacritic=circumflex}}

Adding the block "Pairs with Letter X"

  • When the parameter is a straight letter A-Z, the block with letter pairs is shown.
  • When the parameter show pairs=yes/no is set, the pairs will show/hide accordingly:

{{Latin script|À|show pairs=yes}}
