Template documentation

The Template:Latin_letter_info displays the letter-image boxes for a letter in the basic Latin alphabet. The specific image location-coordinates are hard-coded inside this template, to allow shifting locations of all letters by editing this one template, rather than each of the 26 Latin-letter articles.

Also this template contains extra markup to correctly align the letter images on various browsers, especially aligning for MSIE browsers IE6, IE7, IE8 or IE9.

Previously, the image alignment was specified in each of the 26 Latin letter articles, formerly requiring all 26 articles to be changed if the diagram name, or layout, had been changed. Also, as a shared template, any proposed changes can by tested by a run-preview with "Show preview" of each Latin-letter article, before saving any changes. Hence, it is possible to re-shift the locations of all 26 letters, and pre-test the results, while editing this template only once. One or more letters could display different images than the other letters.
