Template documentation

## Usage

{{Quote}} is a template meant for displaying quotations. Quotes work best when used with short sentences, and at the start or end of a section, as a hint of the following section's content.

### Syntax

1. {{quote|quote text}}
2. {{quote|quote text|author=author or speaker}}
3. {{quote|quote text|author=author or speaker|source=title of article, speech, book, etc.}}

### Parameters

Parameter 1
text of the quote; use <br /> between paragraphs.
Required
Note: if the quote text contains one or more "=" (equal signs), then the template must be called as {{quote|1=quote text}} (see "Equals sign in parameter value")
author
Name of the person that wrote or spoke the text being quoted. Can include wiki syntax.
source
Source of the quote (publication title, speech, etc.). Can include wiki syntax.
bgcolor
The color of the background.
float
Defaults to center, but can also be right or left
wide
When set to "yes", the quote expands to the entire width of the page. Useful for small quotes, but may clash with other floating objects, such as infoboxes.

### Simple example

{{quote|quote text}}

### Other examples

{{quote|1=F=ma|author=Isaac Newton}}

(the 1= is necessary as quote text contains an equal sign)

{{quote|1=Thus:
:[itex]E=mc^2[/itex]|author=Albert Einstein}}

(quote text contains an equal sign and math syntax)
