## Templates

### Use of the equals sign

Within the body of a template, such as the {{Solution | ... }} template, the wiki will interpret an = sign as indicating a named parameter, which will lead to the template not being displayed correctly. Therefore, either avoid the use of the = sign, or surround it in nowiki tags, like this:

{{Solution |
1+1<nowiki>=</nowiki>2
}}

Alternatively, if you wish to use an = in an equation, you can drop into math mode as in:

$1 + 1 = 2$


or

\$1 + 1 = 2\$.
