Rename to EB1911 poster[edit]

Many of the other templates that display an article link in a box to Wikisource are called name poster. I propose to move this one to {{EB1911 poster}}. Thoughts? -- PBS (talk) 06:47, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

"Wikisource 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica" would be a better name - actually says what it is. Rich Farmbrough, 22:24, 18 May 2011 (UTC).

Edit request 11Apr13[edit]

There is a version in the sandbox that will add italics to the book's name. Please fix this template. --Funandtrvl (talk) 18:11, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

This edit did not synchronize exactly (see test cases). In addition to adding the italics, a space was removed which is necessary for the template to work properly. This space is still present in the sandbox. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 20:41, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Protected edit request on 27 December 2014[edit]

The title of the Encyclopædia should be italicized. The titles of the encyclopædia's entries should not: besides being unhelpful formatting, it's in violation of the MOS:

Examples of titles which are quoted but not italicized:

... Entries in a reference work (dictionary, encyclopedia, etc.)

The bolding is fine (and optional italics might be an unnecessary but helpful functionality to include for entries on paintings, novels, and other major works), but the standard entry headings need to be unitalicized and in double quote marks. — LlywelynII 12:31, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: @LlywelynII: I've added a version to the sandbox that uses double quote marks and has an optional |italic=yes parameter. However, I have a couple of misgivings about it. The italics bunch up with the quotation marks, which is a little ugly (see Iliad in the test cases), and quotation marks seem unnatural when the second parameter is defined ("Wikisource has the text of a 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica article about "Anaconda, Montana"). This probably needs more discussion, so I'm marking this as not done for now. We can reactivate the request (or just implement it) when the code is ready. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 13:06, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
