The box is formatted with the help of common and skin-specific stylesheets - allowing the template to be used both with and without additional formatting information. The box consists of three parts - left and right inserts as well as the main (text) cell; the cells are rendered if the relevant content parameters are provided.

Note: This is a generic section stub. You can help expand it by clicking Sprite-monaco-pencil Edit to the right of the section title.
