Here is how to create a grey box around a particular selection of text: Place two {{ at the start of the box, followed (with no space) by the word greybox followed (with no space) by a | followed (with no space) by the word text, followed (with no space) by = (an equals sign), followed (with no space) by the start of the text. At the very end of the text that you wish to be included in the box place two }}.


Here is an example:

{{greybox|text=As an experiment in history by the the people, some of the content of 
 OutHistory.org is user-generated by anyone with data or documents and source citations to share.
 Content is also solicited from or volunteered by  independent scholars, institutionally-based  
 researchers, archivists, collectors, and the public.
