Usage

Uise this template tae create a reference leet in smaw font for an article. Note that thare is no consensus that smaw font size should always be uised for aw references; when normal-sized font is mair appropriate on an article, uise <references /> instead.

If uised wi no parameters, it will produce a reference leet wi a single column.

Multiple columns

Uisin {{reflist|2}} will create a twa-column reference leet, an {{reflist|3}} will create a three-column leet. Three-column lists are inaccessible tae users wi smawer/laptop monitors an should be avoided.

Uisin {{reflist|colwidth=30em}} will allou the browser tae automatically choose the nummer o columns based on the width o the web browser. Choose a column width that's appropriate for the average width o the references on the page.

Note: multiple columns currently render properly anly in Mozilla Firefox an ither Gecko-based browsers,[1] an Safari 3[2] tho the featur is included in CSS3, sae it should wirk for a lairger nummer o browsers in the future.[3]

Three options for usage

Option 1 (only specific references) — Example:

==Content==
Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

==References==
{{reflist}}

Option 2 (only general references) — Example:

==Content==
Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

==References==
{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
* general reference 2
{{refend}}

Option 3 (both specific and general references) — Example:

==Content==
Lorem ipsum.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.<ref>Source name, access date, etc.</ref>

Lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

==References==
{{reflist}}

{{refbegin}}
* general reference 1
* general reference 2
{{refend}}

Continuing the references

In order tae add references manually, uise the "#" sign an enclose the additional references in the "references-small" div style, as in this example:

<div class="references-small">
#<li value="2"> [http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/features/feature20070719.cfm ''Cassini-Huygens: NEWS - Features - Saturn Turns 60'']
# [http://www.scitech.ac.uk/PMC/PRel/STFC/frank.aspx ''A new moon for Saturn a family affair'']
# [http://ciclops.org/view.php?id=3353 ''From Dark Obscurity… A Tiny New Saturnian Moon Comes To Light'']
</div>

The <li value="2"> tag is uised tae ensure the new references stairt at the correct nummer. In the example, thare wis juist ane reference. Had thare been 10, we would hae stairtit the additional references at "11".
