Template:MssD

Manuscript, .

Usage

3 variables

  • variable 1: first 2 numbers of a four-digit year. This will place the work page in the category of "Manuscripts from the ##00s."
  • variable 2: second 2 numbers of a four-digit year. Input a value here if the date is on the manuscript. The template will display the year.
  • variable 3: second 2 numbers of a four-digit year. Input a value here if the date is not on the manuscript but the exact year the manuscript was written is known. The template will display the year within brackets and preceded by "n.d." If a value is input into variable 3 the template will disregard any value assigned to variable 2.

NOTE: the template requires values to be assigned to variable 1 and either variable 2 or 3 otherwise its output is meaningless.
