Thanks! And I hope you like how I fattened up the "rquote" stuff to show better how it acts around other text. humanUser talk:Human 16:15, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Hey, that's some really nice stuff. Well done!--Bobbing up 16:18, 1 December 2007 (EST)
Thank Susan, she did all the hard work. I just pasted in some gibberish to display the rquote examples better. humanUser talk:Human 16:19, 1 December 2007 (EST)
Yes, I had wondered about doing someting like that. (on my scrreeen it don't work - they're 'all one after t'other down the screen so I wasn't sure how it looked - thanks! Susanpurrrrr ... 16:23, 1 December 2007 (EST)
I've rooted all round WP & the other templates are all either redundant or ovr complex. Susanpurrrrr ... 17:05, 1 December 2007 (EST)
Thanks. We've got the three we need and nice documentation now, though. The piped byilne argys for c and r quote were especially nice to find out about. And the grey box one is the one I wanted to find. What size is your screen? 300 x 400?

Portrait: 2 'n' 1/8" x 2 'n' 7/8" (5.5 x 7 cm) heh! Tiny innit? & The onscreen keyboard takes ip an inch @ the bottom (but switches off when not in use) Dunno the px measurements.Susanpurrrrr ... 18:47, 1 December 2007 (EST)

n characters: Screen width: In tahoma 8pt - 29 x "m", 37 x "n", 56 x "." Height: Still in tahoma 8 pt - 15 lines

It sounds worse than it is actually, From what I've managed already it should be apparent that it's quite usable. Should be on desktop & broadband any day now. (2 x 19" screens!). Susanpurrrrr ... 20:12, 1 December 2007 (EST)

And God help us all then. ;-) --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 20:26, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Mwuahaha! Heh!Heh! Heh!Heh! (evil laugh followed by crone's cackle) Susanpurrrrr ... 20:35, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Scary. With what you can do while peering at a tiny screen and hitting microscopic buttons, who knows what feats you can accomplish with a three screen, dual processor, two keyboards, six arms and a direct connection to innertubes central!?!? humanUser talk:Human 21:40, 1 December 2007 (EST)
Nice work Susan!!!

Is it possible to put a series of quotes one after the other without line breaks? And can the quotation marks sense the size of the text quoted? The text on the left looks a bit lonely inside its quotation marks. (I don't know, you try to help people and all you get is complaints!!) --Bobbing up 15:36, 2 December 2007 (EST)

After extensive research, the only response that I can give is: "You've got to be joking!". Susanpurrrrr ...
Go look @ wp:Template:Cquote & wp:Template:Rquote. Be my guest if you can make anything of them. Susanpurrrrr ... 16:13, 2 December 2007 (EST)

Working .... working .... w o r k i n g . . . . NO! Susanpurrrrr ... 17:13, 2 December 2007 (EST)

rquote is a fixed width "box", so short quotes will look lonely. This is how they force the wrapping around them, basically. cquote is however wide needed, up to 100%, I think. But doesn't wrap text around itself. humanUser talk:Human 16:41, 2 December 2007 (EST)

Cool test[edit]

This is on the left


and this is on the right


And this is a bunch of text typed on the same line as the two rquote usages. An interesting test? Who knows. Eh, pretty cool, as long as the user's screen is wide enough to show both quotes "in line" and still leave room for random gibberish in between, like "your signature gave me epilepsy" or "your signature gave me herpes". Either way, it must mean the user doesn't like flashing, pus-laden signatures. humanUser talk:Human 16:41, 2 December 2007 (EST)

I made my window smaller, and apparently, rquote is a percentage, not a fixed pixel width, because all three "columns" above got narrower - to the point where the text in the quotes started wrapping. humanUser talk:Human 19:12, 2 December 2007 (EST)
