To collect images or olpc & user boxes into a single column grouping easily. This template is not just for userboxes; it is also an efficient way of creating a column of images to run along the side of an article. {{Gallery}}, by contrast, creates rows of images and is used when the images should not run alongside the text but rather should serve as a break in the text.

This documentation needs to be fully integated to the wiki.

table.userboxes { display: none; }

table.olpcboxes { display: none; }

the above has to be determined & established
