Usage[édit | sunting sumber]

{{Smallcaps}} will display the lowercase part of your text as typographical small caps. You can most especially use this template for name/surname disambiguation in lead sections, and all-caps words or pronounceable acronyms.

Code  
{{Smallcaps|Your Text in 4004 bc}}
Displayed
Your Text in 4004 bc
Pasted  
Your Text in 4004 bc

Your source text is not altered in the output, only the way it is displayed on the screen: a copy-paste of the text will give the small caps sections in their original form; similarly, an older or non-CSS browser will only display the original text on screen. This can be seen as a problem, solved with {{sc}}.

Notes[édit | sunting sumber]

  • Diacritics (å, ç, é, ğ, ı, ñ, ø, ş, ü, etc.) are handled. However, because the job is performed by each reader's browser, inconsistencies in CSS implementations can lead to some browsers not converting certain rare diacritics.
  • Use of this template does not generate any automatic categorization. As with most templates, if the argument contains an = sign, the sign should be replaced with {{Equal}}, or the whole argument be prefixed with 1=. And for wikilinks, you need to use piping. There is a parsing problem with MediaWiki which causes unexpected behavior when a template with one style is used within a template with another style.

Reasons to use small caps[édit | sunting sumber]

Small caps are useful for encyclopedical and typographical uses including:

To lighten ALL-CAPS words or pronounceable acronyms
  • The biblical "Lord" (instead of LORD or Lord) or "Lord God" as written in some Bibles
  • The acronyms Unesco (instead of UNESCO or Unesco) or Unicef
  • The trademark Time (instead of TIME or Time)
To lighten ALL-CAPS surnames mandated by citation styles such as Harvard
  • Piccadilly has been compared to "a Parisian boulevard" (Dickens 1879).
  • Dickens, C., Jr (1879). "Piccadilly" in Dickens's Dictionary of London. London: C. Dickens.[1]
To disambiguate Western names and surnames at a glance
To disambiguate Eastern surnames and names at a glance

Technical[édit | sunting sumber]

Technically, the template merely wraps the standard:

<SPAN STYLE="font-variant:small-caps;"> ... </SPAN>

(The "font-variant:small-caps;text-transform:lowercase" has not been used because it doesn't work at least in Internet Explorer 5 and 6, which are still fairly common browsers.)
