Style Sheet for OEIS Wiki

The Style Sheet covers general matters of style in the OEIS, both in the sequences and on the wiki. This style guide (Style Sheet for OEIS Wiki) provides additional guidance specific to the OEIS Wiki.

• Wiki pages titles:
• Grammatical number for Wiki pages titles: please use the singular whenever possible.
• Wiki pages categories:
• Categories should be created for topics where there are at least 4–5 pages. Categories with only one or two members should be deleted and the pages moved to the appropriate supercategory.
• Categories generally use the plural.

Tables

Use wikitext tables (not HTML tables.) For consistent styling of tables, e.g. as the following table style:

Table title
$N\,$ Name Generating

function

Order

of basis

Differences Partial sums Partial sums of reciprocals Sum of Reciprocals
3 Triangular $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ 4 Square $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ 5 Pentagonal $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ $\,$ Copy and paste and adapt from the following wikitable text:

<!--== Wikitable color scheme is: [background: #f2f2f2; for table header] [background: #f9f9f9; for table cells] ==-->
{| class="wikitable" align="center" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="4" style="border-collapse: collapse; border: 1px solid darkgray; background: #f9f9f9; color: black; empty-cells: show; text-align: right;"
