[view] [edit] [history] [purge] Template documentation
Description
This template is used to insert descriptions on template pages.
Syntax
Type <noinclude>{{documentation}}</noinclude> at the end of the template page.
Usage
The following should be appended to a page in the template namespace:
Template code<includeonly>Any categories to be inserted into articles by the template</includeonly><noinclude>
{{documentation}}</noinclude>
Note that, depending on the template, you may need to add a clear or complete a table/div just before {{documentation}} is inserted (within the noinclude tags).
The line break is also useful as it helps prevent the documentation template "running into" previous code.
/doc page formatting

<noinclude>[[Category:Template documentation|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>
Use any or all of the above description/syntax/sample output sections. You may also want to add "see also" or further usage information sections.
Note that the above example also uses the Template:T and Template:T/piece templates.
