“There are three classes of people:

  1. Those who see.
  2. Those who see when they are shown.
  3. Those who do not see.”
    — Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), on Mankind

“There are two kinds of people in the world:

« Who shaves the barber?»”

Hello, World!

my name is Maurice Carbonaro[who?], and right now I'm employed[by whom?] as an I.T. assistant on tenure (so I am NOT a professor)[1] at the Scientific State High School "Enrico Fermi"[pronunciation?] of Ragusa.[citation needed]

I've been an English language registered wikipedian since the 11th January 2003 using the anonymous nick "little_guru"[verification needed] and even earlier as an IP.[citation needed]
Starting from september 2006 I've decided to use also my real name and surname subscribing also to some other wikis in other languages.[citation needed]
In my humble opinion every good wikipedian should make the majority of their editing using their real name and surname in order to encourage free speech and dialogue amongst all the people of the world.[neutrality is disputed]
Adopting socks should be considered when really necessary.[original research?]
I don't consider myself a Don Quixote; sometimes there are very good reasons to remain anonymous or pseudonymous and I will protect everyone's right to do so.[dubious ]
My P.O.V.s are relative to myself as long as they don't harm people or groups of people with a clear malignant purpose.[clarification needed]
I'm also fond of photography and my Erdős number is private°.[citation needed]

How to reduce or enlarge font sizes

Editors should avoid manually inserting large and small font sizes into prose. Increased and decreased font size should primarily be produced through automated facilities such as headings or through carefully designed templates. Below is one list of font sizing templates that have been tested and are available if needed:

Font size templates
Template Size Semantics Sample
{{small}} 85% <small> HHHHH
{{smaller}} 90% none HHHHH
{{midsize}} 92% none HHHHH
none 100% none HHHHH
{{larger}} 110% none HHHHH
{{big}} 120% none HHHHH
{{large}} large none HHHHH
{{huge}} 180% none HHHHH
{{resize}} 90% default none HHHHH

Example: {{big|Will make the text here larger}} renders as: Will make the text here larger

Also, works with Unicode and IPA. Example: {{big|{{unicode|ὡ}}}} renders as:
