This template is for explicitly indicating that the content inside it represents input from a keyboard or other source (speech recognition software, standard input, etc.) It uses the [X]HTML element
The template takes one mandatory parameter, the content to be marked up. If this content contains "=" (an equals sign), the parameter Template:Em be explicitly named Template:Para, or the template will fail. (This is a limitation of the MediaWiki software, not the template.) It is always safer to use Template:Para syntax. It may be used as a container for Template:Tlx, Template:Tlx or Template:Tag when the example keyboard input contains or consists entirely of a variable. It may also be used with (but not inside) Template:Tlx, or with Template:Tag (it generally should not be used inside the latter, as input is not a part of source code, but something that interacts with it; however, this style can be used to illustrate computer display of mixed type, as illustrated below).
Some of these examples may look slightly different outside this documentation, because the default background color varies by page type (articles are stark white, template documentation pale green, most other pages very pale grey). In-article example:
