This template is taken from German Wikipedia (de:Template:Internetquelle) and is designed to display Internet sources and references in a standard way. It is intended to be used with articles translated from German Wikipedia, so that the references still work. Please do not amend this template, except to conform to any future changes in the German equivalent (it is a global template).
