This is an auxiliary template allowing to encode "|" within template parameters. It is unnecessary to get a "|" in these cases, better use "|" for this purpose. However the "|" delimiter for a Wiki table has to be escaped by a template if it's used within a template, see also w:Wikipedia:Qif conditionals.

Note that there's no such problem with "!" (exclamation mark), it only affects "|" (vertical bar) in conjunction with the m:Help:Parameter default mechanism within tables.

For obvious reasons this is a high risk template, and it cannot be substituted.
