Indentation[edit]

This uses a clever system to stop users doing their own indentation. Clever, yes, but why? Mglovesfun (talk) 10:08, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Formatting of poems is broken[edit]

This template is broken for poetry:

1850, Lydia Sigourney, The Brother from Poems for the Sea, page 71:

Even, if our sails like ribbons fly,
And the dead-lights long are in,
Hard up the helm! and keep good heart!
Till skies are bright again.

This doesn't indent properly and it isn't recognised by the quotation-hiding JS. Inductiveload 23:56, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

First of all, you should use {{quote-book}} in entries- it's more frequently updated and and more likely to reflect current policy. Second, see Wiktionary:Quotations#Line_breaks Nadando 00:05, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt reply. I've added a "see-also" to the template to make this clear to other bumblers like me who stumble on this template first. As for the formatting, that's what I was doing anyway, so that's OK! Inductiveload 02:40, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
