Small box

This is a small template general message box.

This is a message box that can be used to highlight minor issues with a template or documentation of it. It is suggested to use a normal box for bigger problems with the template or documentation. Text can flow around this box, so if you do not want text beside the box, you should use the <div style="clear:both"></div> directly after the box.

Here is the code for the above box.

{{Xmbox
| small = yes
| type  = notice
| text  = This is a small template general message box.
}}
