For use with works with sidenotes where the works are transcluded from the Page: namespace.

These templates display sidenotes to the left and right as displayed when in the Page namespace, though when the pages are transcluded to the main namespace, the sidenotes are 'all displayed on the left hand side of the page. Uses a &ltspan> for formatting.

  • Pages with original notes on left hand side use {{outside L}}
{{outside L|Special sidenote to display}}{{lorem ipsum}}
Special sidenote to display Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.
  • Pages with original notes on right hand side use {{outside RL}}
{{outside RL|Special sidenote to display}}{{lorem ipsum}}

Note: Template:outside is not and should not be used directly, it is called as appropriate from within {{outside L}} and {{outside RL}}

Available parameters

  • {{{depth}}}: Depth of penetration into left margin, default 9em.
  • {{{padding}}}: The space on the right of the text, default 1em.
  • {{{top}}}: Vertical offset of text (margin-top) in pixel, default is 4px
  • {{{align}}}: Text alignment (text-align) within the span, default to "left"
  • {{{size}}}: Size of font (font-size), default to "smaller", can be freely set,
  • Note that line-height is set to 125%


Note - The use of this template has elements of complexity due to the requirement for the technical placement of text relative to other text
  • PAGE: namespace

When set within the Page: namespace, the use of {{sidenotes begin}} and {{sidenotes end}} within the header and footer, respectively, is recommended for display purposes.

  • MAIN namespace

When transcluding to main namespace, the following formatting is recommended

<div style="margin-left: XXem">
<pages your transclusion details as Wikisource:ProofreadPage />

where XXem = depth + padding; so 10em for default usage
