Use template {{xt}} (the name of which stands for "example text") to change the given text to the serif typeface, and green text, in order to format examples of style, especially when using quotation marks or italics could be confusing. This template is used frequently in the Manual of Style when inline typeface changes are needed. (For style examples that break to their own line, use {{xt2}}).) For examples of

bad/wrong style, in red

, use {{!xt}} and {{!xt2}}, respectively.

As with all templates, when the text, given as the template parameter, has any equals characters, prefix the text with |1= in order to ensure any equals signs in the given text are correctly interpreted as being part of the normal text.


What you write
...for example, {{xt|1=''T'' = 293.15 K}}, {{xt|1=''m'' = 5.4 kg}}.
What you get
...for example, T = 293.15 K, m = 5.4 kg.

The accompanying change in typeface to a serif typestyle, (example text) is to make it fully accessible for those with color blindness.
