[Edit] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

{{dablink|text}} formating text into the standard stylistic for a Wikipedia hatnote, a short note placed at the top of an article to provide disambiguation of closely related terms or summarise a topic, explaining its boundaries.

Usage and purpose

This template is primarily used to add disambiguation links (dab is Wikipedia shorthand for "disambiguation") to the top of article pages. It places an HTML div- / div block around the material given as its only argument, which provides standardized formatting (contents are indented and italicized in most displays); it also isolates the contained code to make sure that it is interpreted correctly.

Contrary to what its name may imply, the template does not automatically create links of any kind. Links and other desired formatting must be explicitly added, using normal Wikipedia markup.
