This template is intended for use with text written in the Unicode "Mongolian" script. Note, the Unicode "Mongolian" script is a unification of the Mongolian, Todo, Manchu and Sibe scripts, so this template can be used for text written in various different languages, including varieties of Mongolian (Classical Mongolian, Halh [khk] and Peripheral Mongolian [mvf]), as well as Manchu [mnc] and Sibe [sjo].
1st parameter is the Mongolian (Todo, Manchu, Sibe) text to display
2nd parameter is optional; if it is 'h' then the text is laid out horizontally; if it is any other value (e.g. 'v'), or if it is omitted then the text is laid out vertically (if the browser supports vertical layout)
lang parameter: defines the language of the text, e.g. mn for Mongolian, mnc for Manchu, and sjo for Sibe; also used for switching font families by language
style parameter: defines extended style of the text area, e.g. height:50px limits the height as 50px, if the length of text is over than 50px, the rest of contents will align at the next column(s).
In addition, you can override the defaults for font-size, line-height, and display using likewise named parameters.
If you have a long run of vertical Mongolian text (i.e. more than one or two words) embedded in a horizontal English paragraph, it will create a very large gap between lines, so it is best to break long vertical runs of Mongolian text into short word-lengthed chunks. This can be done by wrapping each Mongolian word in a separate MongolUnicode template, and separating each MongolUnicode template by a space character (if you omit the space character the Mongolian text will format correctly, but if a user copies the Mongolian text from the article the individual words will be concatenated into a single word). Do not use <br/> to break vertical Mongolian runs for unnecessary purpose as this causes problems with browsers which do not support vertical layout.
Currently only Internet Explorer 8 and above, Edge, Firefox 41 and above, and Webkit browsers (Chrome, Safari, Opera 15.0+, Android native browser) support rendering the text in top-to-bottom, left-to-right format. Other browsers will render the text as left-to-right, top-to-bottom or don't connect the characters. See also:
