Portable infoboxes include a wide variety of tags and options that you can use to make the infobox display how you want. Below we have listed all the standard tags, with sample wikitext and output HTML, to help you identify what you need to use, and how to give it a CSS makeover (see also Help:Infoboxes/CSS). Note that parser functions can also be used.

All infobox fields should be declared using XML convention, with attributes used for field configuration[1]
