Small box

This is a small article general message box.

This is a message box that can be used in a section of an article to highlight issues with the section. It is suggested to use a normal box for problems within the whole article. Text can flow around this box, so if you do not want text beside the box, you should use the <div style="clear:both"></div> directly after the box.

Here is the code for the above box.

{{Ambox
| small = yes
| type  = notice
| text  = This is a small article general message box.
}}
