Usage[change source]

The {{Esp}} template is intended to facilitate and make uniform scientific notation numbers. Its is a spaced version of {{e}} template. To render

3.14 × 10−12

instead of writing:


you can write:


which yields that same wikitext, and is therefore rendered the same.

Note that the parameter is text, not a number; it can include variables which can be italicized, etc. This also means that using a hyphen (-) and a minus sign (−) with negative numbers gives different results.

3.14{{Esp|-12}}—3.14 × 10-12
3.14{{Esp|&minus;12}}—3.14 × 10−12
3.14{{Esp|−12}}—3.14 × 10−12
3.14{{Esp|''z'' − ''y''}}—3.14 × 10zy
