Template page

The following documentation is transcluded from Template:HMS/doc:

This template is intended to simplify the wikicode needed for properly italicizing the name of a sailing ship or starship, such as:

[[HMS Bounty|HMS ''Bounty'']]

The template allows for up to three variables:

  1. Ship's name
  2. Disambiguation (if any)
  3. Textual postfix (if any)
{{HMS|Shipname|Disambiguation|Postfix text}}

Usage Edit

The simplest use is with the ship's name, such as:


HMS Bounty

Use of the single variable version should be avoided if a name has been given to more than one ship, unless the object is to direct the user to a disambiguation page. An example of this would be:


HMS Bounty
