This is the {{pipe}} meta-template. It looks like this: |

This template uses the | decimal code for the vertical bar (or pipe character) so that its usage doesn't cause problems when it is used inside a template. {{Pipe}} is easier to remember and clearer than an unadorned |.

Please do not use the Unicode ǀ (which produces ǀ) since that does not work in all web browsers. It is also slightly smaller than |.

  • {{!}} - A magic word to encode "|" within template parameters or wikitables. Note that this one looks the same but has a very different meaning for the MediaWiki parser and thus has different functionality.
