{for}

{for} doesn't get any special styling. It's useful for specifying that content only applies to certain operating systems or Firefox versions. See How to use For for details.

Templates

Templates are a way of reusing small pieces of content. Instead of writing a message twice, you can create and update it in one place, and then refer to it in other pages. The other pages will stay up-to-date with changes to the Template automatically! See Using Templates for details.
