CSS for source code

There's a nice style applied to source code snuippeds inside pre tags. But i didn't find a way to combine it with the source tags. Is it possible to set the CSS of the source tags to the same as the pre tags? For example, here i had to set the XML code snippets into divs with CSS attributes to make them appear in that nice gray box. --Florianschmitt 17:27, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

SVG Thumbnailer has problem with umlaut in filename?

The file Image:White_1_in_white_circle_with_Gü_above.svg White 1 in white circle with Gü above.svg does not show up in the wiki. It works fine for other versions without umlaut in filename like for example Image:White_V_in_white_circle_with_G_above.svg White V in white circle with G above.svg -- LosHawlos 18:42, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

I've now uploaded using a different filename without umlaut White 1 in white circle with Guuml above.svg -- LosHawlos 17:57, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Fixed -- firefishy 21:59, 9 November 2009 (UTC)



Where can I get some help with creating a template on this wiki? I imported {{Start date}} from Wikipedia, including two sub-templates, but it's not working. What am I missing? Pigsonthewing 22:53, 15 August 2010 (BST)

Wrong reference or typo ???

Whilst translating into Dutch I came across this sentence:

" You should probably not use any map image from Wikimedia, even where they are pronounced cc-by-sa on Wikipedia, because this community applies more strict criteria regarding derivative works."

I was confused by the mentioning of Wikimedia, since elsewhere is mentioned Wikimedia Commons.

I wonder if there is a typo there and if originally was meant to write: Wikipedia

Well I think it means "wikimedia commons" but this is pretty much one and the same thing when it comes to images and copyrights (wikipedia hosts most of its images at wikimedia commons). Saying just "wikimedia" is a reasonable shortcut too. In fact it's technically more accurate, since the thing we're talking about here applies to wikimedia commons and any/all of the wikimedia sister projects. They all treat geodata copyrights less strictly than us.
Note that this is only talking about map images. We have stricter rules about map image copyrights, so presenting map images, brought in from commons, can cause some confusion. Other images... no problem.
