followed by that description. Any spaces surrounding the parameter are removed, and a space is inserted before it. It should be worded so as to make the result a complete English sentence. A period (full stop) will be added to the end if the parameter does not already end with a period. The hatnote is indented and on a new line (technically, in a new <div>).
