Formatting Ugliness Edit

The Sphere template has italics tags around all the spells so you don't have to do them manually except for the parts which aren't italic. The table doesn't do that, so italics are reversed on the table from what they should be. I don't know enough about the template syntax to fix this. --IGTN 00:53, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

It was a problem with the way that the properties were set, since it's the properties that are read out for the table. It was setting them to italic in the page, but not in the property. And since the template uses standard wiki italic starts and ends, the "''" at the beginning and end, you putting in an early italic end left the regular one from the template hanging...
So, technical stuff aside, if you want to make a portion of the spell entry non-italic you need to put it inside of this: '' stuff that you don't want italicized ''&nbsp ;, and you have to take that last space out from between the nbsp and the ; (I just can't make it show properly in the page). That trailing set will reopen the italics and put a null character in after it to prevent it from butting up against the closing italics that the template adds, which would just confuse things. Blegh. - TarkisFlux 01:25, May 7, 2010 (UTC)
If that doesn't make any sense just go look at the Air_(3.5e_Sphere) and see what I added to make it work properly. - TarkisFlux 01:28, May 7, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. I'll go through and fix everything later. --IGTN 01:46, May 7, 2010 (UTC)
