|This template will soon be replaced with a magic word. |
See reasons and status at phab:T91154.
This template is used to escape an equals sign character "=" in wikitext, where it would otherwise be interpreted as a special character. Typically this is used when "=" is needed as part of a template argument.
The HTML character code
= may be used instead of this template in situations where it should never be interpreted as anything except a literal character.
