This is the bold middot template, which produces: " · ". It works similarly to the html+wiki markup sequence [
'''·''' ]. That is, a non-breaking space, a bolded middot and a normal space.
|Here's an example of how it's used|
Normally, in a real box these items would be links, but this is an example.Item1 · A · B · Item2 · Item3 · Item4 · Item5 · extra item · E · 1 · 2 · 3 · 4 · 5 · 6 · 7 · item that won't attach to prior line unless it fits in the remaining space · Q · A slightly longer item · KK · An obviously really even longer item that the dash will hang at its end · Item6 · C · Item7 · Item8 · Item9 · Item10 · Item11 · Item12 · D · Item13 · Item14 · Item15 · Item16 · Item17 · Item18
The space on the end makes sure the dot doesn't touch the edge of the box, either
Technical details[edit source]
The space before the dot is a non-breaking space. That means it will not line break and will not collapse together with normal spaces that come before the template.
The space after the dot is a normal space. That means it wraps (allows line breaks) and it will collapse together with normal spaces that come after the template to form one single space.
Under some circumstances dotted link lists misbehave. They might get unexpected line wraps or they might expand outside the box they are enclosed in.
