This documentation is transcluded from Template:Tq/doc.


Use this template for inline quotations (of other editors' comments or from the article) on talk pages.

Use template {{tq}} (the name of which stands for "talk quotation") or {{talk quotation}} in order to format examples of style, especially when using quotation marks or italics could be confusing. This changes the given text to the serif typeface and green color. This is the talk-namespace equivalent to {{xt}}, a template used frequently in the Manual of Style when inline typeface changes are needed. For quotations that break onto their own line, or contain paragraph breaks, use {{talkquote}} instead.

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.

The accompanying change in typeface to a serif or mono-spaced type style, (example text) is to make it fully accessible for those with color blindness.

A parameter |i=, if specified with a value, will force the content to be italicised.

The parameter |title= takes text, which cannot be marked up in any way, and displays it as a pop-up "tooltip" (in most browsers) when the cursor hovers over the span.


What you write
...for example, {{tq|Lorem ipsum '''dolor''' sit}} amet, {{tq|consectetur adipiscing elit|i=yes|title=This is a tooltip}}.
What you get
...for example, Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
