From Gerald R. Lucas

A template to aid switching the font-size used for a text string.



N specifies a size, such as "95%", "1.2em", etc. If N is omitted, as in the second line above, a default 90% size is applied.

If text happens to contain an equality sign ("="), specify {{resize|N|2=text}} or {{resize|1=text}}.


{{resize|1.2em|This text is 0.2em larger than normal.}} This text is 0.2em larger than normal.
{{resize|80%|This text is 80% normal size.}} This text is 80% normal size.
{{resize|This text defaults to 90% normal size.}} This text defaults to 90% normal size.


This template should not be used to wrap multiple blocks, such as multiple paragraphs or even multiple bullet points. To do that, either (1) use <div style="font-size:90%;"> ... </div> or some other font size percentage or (2) apply this template separately to each block.
