[[{{{1}}}|<span class="SL">{{{1}}}</span>]]

This template functions exactly like a normal link would, but gives a different color. SL is the shorthand for "Special Link". This is to be used in place of usual links on tables where light text should be used. This does not need to be used in instances where there is already a CSS class that handles link color as that class can be used.

This can also be used to output the ordinary text color of a class instead of the link color.

Typing [[Firion]] will show as Firion whereas {{SL|Firion}} will show as Template:SL. Typing [[Cloud Strife|Cloud]] will show as Cloud whereas {{SL|Cloud Strife|Cloud}} will show as Template:SL.

Another parameter in the template allows the user to change the color of the link. It also means that the color does not change if the link has previously been visited. Typing {{SL|Balamb Garden|color=#CC0000}} will appear as Template:SL and typing {{SL|Treno|Dark City Treno|color=#00CCCC}} will give Template:SL.

Instead of the color parameter, the class parameter may be used. For example, {{SL|Vaan|class=FFXIIa}} will output Template:SL, while {{SL|Vaan|class=FFXIIb}} will output Template:SL.
