This was a work in progress
This page describes guidelines around whitespace, alignment and visual hierarchy within projects run by the Wikimedia Foundation.
Some components have been redesigned in order to validate and test the color palette and proposed type standards.
These components are by no means prescriptive, they are meant for suggestions and validations.
Infobox modules (Appear in the rightmost column of wikipedia pages)

- Haphazard spacing between lines which creates unclear groupings
- Arbitrary color fills used as backgrounds for the group headings
- Suggestions for infoboxes
