Usage

This template uses the decimal code for the apostrophe or single-quote character so that it doesn't become interpreted with adjacent italics ('') or bold (''') wiki markup. This situation most commonly arises when taking the possessive of titles that should be italicized. {{'}} is shorter than <nowiki>'</nowiki> and clearer than an unadorned &#39;.

This template leaves leading space before the apostrophe. This template is intended for use with italic text. For example:

  • The ''Iliad''{{'}}s vocabulary is archaic.

generates:

  • The Iliad's vocabulary is archaic.

with a tiny amount of space before the apostrophe to avoid colliding with the italic d at the end of Iliad.
