Italicizing use-with-mention[edit]

  • Voting on: whether the code
    .use-with-mention { font-style: italic; }

    be added to [[MediaWiki:Common.css]], immediately below the line
    /* default style for "form of" definitions */

    and immediately above the now-following line
    .use-with-mention .mention, .defn-form-of .lemma { font-style: normal; font-weight: bold; }
  • Explanation:
    • This will change the default style of non-gloss definitions, including form-of definitions, to italic. The lemma form mentioned in form-of definitions will remain unitalicized by default.
    • There is already considerable support for this in the discussion that led to this vote, but this is being brought to a vote because an old vote can be construed as being overridden by this one.
