Variables

There are three template variables available...
var1 = text
var2 = width       — This parameter is optional (Default = 80%)
var3 = left-indent — This parameter is optional (Default = 10%)

Usage

Default (preferred method)

Leaving the "width" and "left-margin" variables out, like so:

{{Otheruses|sample text line 1<br>sample text line 2<br>sample text line 3 (if necessary)}}

...will yield:

text line 1
sample text line 2
sample text line 3 (if necessary)


Other examples

Auto width

The width can be set to the minimum width needed by simply adding "auto" to the second variable, like so:

{{Otheruses|sample text line 1<br>sample text line 2<br>text line 3 (if necessary)|auto}}

...which yields:

text line 1
sample text line 2
sample text line 3 (if necessary)


Another example of "auto" width:

{{Otheruses|sample text line 1, more text on line 1, even more text on line 1<br>sample text line 2<br>sample text line 3 (if necessary)|auto}}

...which yields:

sample text line 1, more text on line 1, even more text on line 1
sample text line 2
sample text line 3 (if necessary)


Left-indent

Note: Since the "left-indent" is the third variable, you must manually enter a variable for "width".

To change the left-indent (from the default 10%) to 5%; and then, add 5% to the width (80%) to make it look like auto, use:

{{Otheruses|sample text line 1<br>sample text line 2|85%|5%}}

which yields:

sample text line 1
sample text line 2


Auto width and left-indent

{{Otheruses|sample text line 1<br>sample text line 2|auto|auto}}

which yields:

sample text line 1
sample text line 2
