Usage

This template is a replacement for <small>...</small>.

Remember "Avoid using smaller font sizes in elements that already use a smaller font size, such as infoboxes, navboxes and reference sections.", per MOS:ACCESS#Font size and MOS:SMALLFONT. Use of this template within an infobox produces a font size 75% of the page default, well below the 85% minimum specified in the linked guidelines.

The only parameter is the content and may contain templates, images, etc. if a block needs to be wrapped in this template and contains such elements. Note that if the = character appears in the content, the parameter must be explicitly specified as |1=.

Do not use this template to wrap multiple lines; doing so will cause Linter errors. If you need to wrap multiple list items or multiple paragraphs, use {{smalldiv}} around the entire block, or wrap each list item or paragraph separately.

Thus  Good practice
input shows
What a wonderful world What a wonderful world
{{small|What a wonderful world}} What a wonderful world
{{small|1=3 + 2 = 5}} 3 + 2 = 5
{{small|1=103}}

{{small|1=+ 2}}

——

{{small|1=105}}

103

+ 2

——

105


Don't do this:

{{small|
*One
*Two
*Three}}

 Do this instead:

{{smalldiv|
*One
*Two
*Three}}
