Physical Properties Template

I had this kooky idea of trying to store the Physical properties data in a template so we could call it up from multiple locations and keep it current. That way we can do things like this:

...pretty easily. Also, I've started the {{Physical properties}} template to display the info in the articles. I have also (I believe) left open the option of using the system for any material, not just the chemical elements. Any objections? Reasons it won't work? Things I should change? Feedback is welcome....--David Yamakuchi 19:22, 24 April 2008 (CDT)
