Template:Mvar/doc

From PS3 Developer wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The mvar template makes the argument italic and formats as mathematics. It is used to refer to individual variables in normal running text. It should not be used within a {{math}} template as that makes the characters too large.

Note that digits in a variable name are conventionally not italic so {{math}} should be used instead in for example {{math|''x''1}} to produce x1.

Usage[edit]

For example:

Let {{mvar|maxnum}} be the maximum value used.

produces:

Let maxnum be the maximum value used.
