Usage

Using {{dablink|text}} formats text into the standard stylistic for a hatnote. That produces a short note placed at the top of an article to provide disambiguation of closely related terms or summarise a topic, explaining its boundaries.

Usage and purpose

This template is primarily used to add disambiguation links (i.e., dablinks) to the top of article pages. It places an HTML <div></div> block around the material given as its only argument, which provides standardized formatting (contents are indented and italicized in most displays). It also isolates the contained code to make sure that it is interpreted correctly.

This template is also used as the "meta-template" for additional specialized disambiguation link templates; see Otheruses templates (example usage) for a list.

Contrary to what its name may imply, the template does not automatically create links of any kind. Links and other desired formatting must be explicitly added, using normal wikitext markup.
