This template encloses the provided text within a dashed line box. The text to the right of the box may be some type of comment such as "a prompt asking for the root password will open.". The effect will be shrink to fit but the width (depending upon wrap style) of the box can be adjusted if necessary. Note the <nowiki> 'prefixed with a space' formatting trick should be avoided. Other style markup like for italic or bold should be placed directly around the specific content and not around the entire template. Individual # symbols should be replaced with {{pound}} and a series of pound symbols may be enclosed within nowiki tags or they will be parsed as numbered list elements.

wrap options

pre = White-space: pre; - default: acts like 'pre' whitespace preserved, text wraps at box border and line breaks.

wrap = White-space: pre-wrap; - whitespace preserved, text wraps at box border and line breaks. Good for very long commands. wiki = White-space: nowrap; - is this the brain damaged method the magic (prefix w/space) wiki text boxes use?? collapse = White-space: pre-line; - multiple white space collapses, text wraps at box border and line breaks. code = White-space: pre; - easier to remember effect name. normal = White-space: normal; - multiple white space collapses, text wraps at box border.

override = White-space: pre; border:none; background: none; (Used for this list) - use for simple 'pre' style formatting
NOTE: There is some weirdness with unintended blank lines at the bottom. For some situations this can be fixed by using one long line that includes a <br> to assist formatting. The default is reasonable for most situations but would require the fix to avoid the extra unneeded space/lines.
