Reflist TemplateEdit

Use this template to create a reference list in small font for an article. Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always be used for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.[1][2][3][4][5]

SyntaxEdit

Type {{reflist|<...>}} where you would normally type <references/>. If used with no parameters, it will produce a reference list with a single column.

Multiple columnsEdit

Using {{reflist|2}} will create a two-column reference list, and {{reflist|3}} will create a three-column list. Three-column lists are inaccessible to users with smaller/laptop monitors and should be avoided.

Using {{reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allow the browser to automatically choose the number of columns based on the width of the web browser. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width of the references on the page.

Note: multiple columns currently render properly only in Mozilla Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers and Safari 3, though the feature is included in CSS3 so it should work for a larger number of browsers in the future.

Sample outputEdit

{{reflist}} gives...

  1. ^ I am a reference 1
  2. ^ I am a reference 2
  3. ^ I am a reference 3
  4. ^ I am a reference 4
  5. ^ I am a reference 5

CSS usedEdit

.references-small { font-size: 90%; }
