Right aligned[edit]

Why is this right aligned? I understand making examples styled differently than usages. But, they could be in a colored box and still left-aligned underneath the appropriate definition. If there's a lot for a single definition, the box could collapse. (But then again, if there's a lot, wouldn't you just want all those in an Appendix or possible Wikipedia?) The RHS alignment makes pages like prepositional phrase look very strange. --Bequw¢τ 00:59, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

The idea was that the examples-box in an entry like [[prepositional phrase]] serves the same sort of role as the image in an entry like [[saw]]. So, in the wikicode it would go right above the inflection line, and when you view the entry, it would be to the right of the definitions. However, I agree with you that it doesn't seem to work very well. A new approach might be in order; for example, perhaps a new ====Examples==== header. (I've always felt that the difference between ====Quotations==== and ===References=== didn't cause quite enough confusion; a new, similarly abstract header should fix that right up.) —RuakhTALK 02:10, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think an extra header is a good idea. --Bequw¢τ 21:02, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
It isn't bad in simple entries. I doubt that there is a good fix for larger entries.

Appearance with embedded audio[edit]

At [[soprano]] I have added an audio file. I am not 100% happy with the appearance. Does anyone have any ideas about improving same. DCDuring TALK 15:49, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Noting that there is also {{listen}}. --Bequw τ 21:09, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to work as the documentation says it does. DCDuring TALK 22:33, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
I removed {{examples-right}} from the entry, and added {{listen}} to it. --Daniel 01:33, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
It looks better, but the box looks bulky. DCDuring TALK 03:07, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
This is the same box added to [[evil laugh]] and [[fart]] by other people. You may wish to suggest changes of design to {{listen}}. --Daniel 03:28, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
