Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template marks a string as Runic script. It is transcluded by {{script}} or, alternatively, by {{runic}}. Do not include this template directly, but instead use: {{script|Runr|‹Runic script string›}}.

Under the hood[edit]

This template contains
<span title="runes" class="script-runic" lang="gem-Runr" style="font-family: 'BabelStone Runic Beagnoth', 'BabelStone Runic Beorhtnoth', 'BabelStone Runic Beorhtric', 'BabelStone Runic Beowulf', 'BabelStone Runic Berhtwald', 'BabelStone Runic Byrhtferth', Junicode, Kevinch, 'Free Monospaced', Code2000, Hnias, 'Noto Sans Runic', 'Segoe UI Historic', 'Segoe UI Symbol';">{{{1}}}</span>

The class="script-runic" allows users to specify their own style for Runic script. Proper display of the characters is achieved by explicit font declarations, with the font Junicode automatically provided by the Universal Language Selector.

Registered Wikipedia users can specify their own style for Runic script text by including a custom font declaration for .script-runic in their user CSS, see Help:User style.


Placing a Runic string in {{script}}:


The result will be a span with a class attribute, like this:

<span title="runes" lang="gem-Runr" class="script-runic">ᚠᚢᚦᚨᚱᚲ</span>

Which appears in your browser as:


Without {{script}}:


The last two should only look different if you are using Internet Explorer 6 or lower on Windows, or if you have a custom style defined for class="script-runic".

Please mark all Runic text with {{script|Runr}}. This will allow users to format all examples of Runic text consistently, with their choice of fonts, colours, etc.
