There are a couple of templates displayed on this page. Template:Notice Proofread and Template:Wikijunior_Solar_System_coolfacts. Template {{Wikijunior_Solar_System_coolfacts}} takes 3 arguments -- an image, a title, and the facts text. It is meant for use in the Wikijunior Solar System article, but it could be used anywhere. I made the box opaque so it could float right over the horizontal lines in the text.


What happens when coolfacts crosses a heading?

Is this like preformatted?

preformatted text is another kind of box

The box is indented from the surrounding paragraph

And back to a regular paragraph

Wouldn't it just be easier to do it this way?

The blockquote tag already exists but you have to make it italics yourself
