Template:Flatlist/doc



Usage

{{Flatlist}} starts a horizontal list, such as:

  • cat
  • dog
  • horse
  • cow
  • sheep
  • pig

The bottom margin is inherited from the current container. Normally this will be 0.5em.

For navigation boxes using {{navbox}}, one can set |listclass=hlist, and achieve the same styling without using this template.

For image captions, * markup does not work, so consider using {{hlist}} instead.

Technical details

This template uses the .hlist CSS class defined in Common.css to generate horizontal lists. It causes ordinary html list items to be displayed inline (horizontally), where they would normally display as block elements (vertically). The class also generates the interpuncts between list items and parentheses around nested lists. Some of the CSS used is not compatible with all browsers, notably Internet Explorer 6 and 7. In these cases, JavaScript in Common.js generates the interpuncts and parentheses.
