The goal for these link templates is to create a set of shorthand codes for the sources commonly found in the Appearances and Notes and references sections. The benefits of using these short codes include:
Small byte code for page source making it easier to edit articles
Improved readability of page source through reduction of formatting text
Increased speed of editing as less typing is needed
A consistent, but configurable, display of sources on the rendered article
In order to accomplished these goals, the short code should be:
Distinct and easy to interpret for most editors familiar with the Harry Potter canon
Flexible enough to handle the various forms for each of the sources (book, film, video game, etc)
Robust enough to handle minor mistakes in parameter formatting and prevent article display issues.
