This is the {{pipe}} meta-template. It looks like this: |

This template uses the &#124; decimal code for the vertical bar (or pipe character) so that its usage doesn't cause problems when it is used inside a template. This situation most commonly arises when the title of a cited reference contains a pipe character instead of a hyphen or dash (e.g. Xbox.com | Xbox.com Home). {{Pipe}} is easier to remember and clearer than an unadorned &#124;.

Please do not use the Unicode &#448; (which produces ǀ) since that does not work in all web browsers. It is also slightly smaller than |.

See also

  • {{!}} - Used to encode "|" within template parameters or wikitables. Note that this one looks the same but has a very different meaning for the MediaWiki parser and thus has different functionality.
  • {{'}} - Used to encode apostrophe to keep it separate from '' and ''' markup.
