Use this template to insert a fixed width gap in inline text. The default is 2em.

For example,

If no argument is given, the default is 2em:

Deprecated or incorrect usage[kemmañ]

Please note: This template is not intended to produce a formatting preference, such as indented paragraphs or double spacing after full stops (periods).


Indentation can be produced with a div style using a CSS command like "text-indent:2em". Patrom:Tl shouldn't be used to indent the first line of a paragraph

Offsetting right-aligned text[kemmañ]

Please do not use a construction like

{{right|This is incorrect{{gap}} }}

Patrom:Tl has a parameter "offset" for this:

{{right|This is correct|offset=2em}}

To insert a vertical gap (i.e. extra line spacing), simply add consecutive carriage returns. To force a gap in situations where the Mediawiki software consumes multiple carriage returns, such as at the end of a page, use Patrom:Tl.

Similar functionality is provided by Patrom:Tl.
