  • Wiki links [[]] are fine in any of the Infobox fields.
  • Include the HTML comments before and following the template; they help inexperienced editors.
  • Please spend some time at the WikiProject Books and its talk page to find about standards on presenting names and other data.
  • In the "language" field, link to the article that is actually about the language; for example, use [[English language|English]], not [[English]]
