A hatnote is a small note positioned at the top of an article. A hatnote may be used to help the reader to help them find the right page, in most cases. Hatnotes are written in italics. (like this: Hello!). Readers may have been found at an article with a hatnote because:
- They have been redirected
- They are looking for a more specific article, such as a disambiguation.
- They are looking for an article that has a similar name with another article.
Hatnotes help readers find the right article using a link or disambiguation.
