[edit] [purge] Template documentation

A template to produce one or more non-breaking spaces (  character entities).

Usage

Syntax

{{spaces|N|type}} produces N consecutive non-breaking spaces (where N is a whole number larger than zero) of the type specified by the second parameter (which are ordered by decreasing space width): em, fig, en, thin, hair. If type is not specified, N non-breaking spaces ( ) are produced. A non-breaking space has the same width as a standard space, whose width is between the width of en and thin.

{{spaces|type}} produces a single non-breaking space of the type indicated.

Controlling line-breaking in infoboxes

This template, usually as its alias {{nbsp}}, may be used with {{wbr}} and {{nowrap}} to control line-breaking in bulletless lists in infoboxes, to prevent wrapped long entries from being confused with multiple entries. See Template:Wbr/doc#Controlling line-breaking in infoboxes for details.
