Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template provides a simple and lean way to build a colored periodic table. Used in a wikitable, it produces a link to an element page and a background color.

Example Hg, in wikitable:

 | {{element cell-1|80|Y}}

It is suited for talkpages; for article space it may be too simple. Precoded PTs for copy-paste are available:

Note that there is the pipe symbol (|) in the middle, separating cell style and cell content.

The template produces a content in formatted CSS style for a single element cell (to be used in a periodic table).

A simple list can be made easily, with colors set or changed: C (for Category color, as set in enwiki), R, G, B, Y, grey, pink, alkaline earth metal

So: |2=...

C (for Category color, as set in enwiki)
R -> red
G -> green
B -> blue
Y ->yellow
grey -> color name
pink -> color name
alkaline earth metal -> category name
title="1" style="width:2em; text-align:center; background:Template:Element cell-1/Z-to-catcolor;"|H H He Li Be B
