Atlas column format[edit]

05-Sep-2007: Analogous to a large-size Atlas book, the Wikimedia Atlas was created (in March 2007) for wide screens; however, many users have 800x600 screen resolution, so column-size has been changed to allow custom column width ("atlas_label_width") for each nation's Atlas article. Many foreign languages have words about 30% longer than English words, so column width can be changed to improve text-wrapping of longer words. Along with narrow column labels, the "Template:Atlas-country" has been changed to allow setting labels for atlas_label_language (which defaults to "Major language(s)") and atlas_label_religion. For example, a short label could be set by using "atlas_label_religion = Religions" (rather than having the default label "Major religion(s)"). Thus far, only those 2 atlas labels are customizable. -Wikid77 00:13, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

US States on a Robinson projection[edit]

I'm looking for a map of the US which contains it's states but is congruent with the US on a robinson projection of the world (e.g. File:BlankMap-World6.svg). There are some maps which contain some of the states (File:World_homosexuality_laws.svg), but not all of them. Is there a way to convert some of the maps from this article? -Moonsnake (talk) 10:19, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
