Integrating TemplateStyles extension for our wiki
MediaWiki released TemplateStyles extension last year. with this extension any experienced editors would be allowed to write sanitized CSS stylesheets and use them in templates, no need to ask administrators for modifying common.css.
In this page I saw a small Wikipedia globe may jumps to the beginning of next line if I resize the browser window, but other links doesn＇t, however if TemplateStyles is introduced, the related template can be improved by means of stylesheets, as what other types of links performanced.

As an alternative to the extension, you can just ping me with whatever CSS updates you have and I’ll apply them :) (I’m [[User:Fito]] at the wiki)
Ok, but the official blog pointed out that the CSS could quickly grow to huge sizes if every special case were added there, it would making the wiki slowly loaded to the reader, however, with the help of TemplateStyles we can be able to separate some special cases into specific templates, then they'll be used only if the template is used, thus make the web page lighter.
