Description Carl Fürstenberg 2007-08-11 01:19:56 UTC
The list specified at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Username_policy&action=edit&oldid=150498185 forces the rendering engine into a halt. First I though it was only a local problem for me, but as other pointed out in subsequent edit that it disable rendering. Strangely it was renderable on a local wiki.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-08-11 05:10:46 UTC
Seems quite odd; the page isn't too large, and doesn't contain such a vast number of links that I'd imagine there being a problem. There seem to be some oddities in the HTML, for example, list elements are being specified with HTML tags (to allow adding "id" attributes for CSS or the like, it seems), and the HTML is, in fact, invalid there, e.g.:

<li id="Misleading MISLEADING" />'''Misleading usernames''' that imply relevant, misleading things about the user, including but not limited to:</li>

This *could* be causing the problem, although I'd question why it isn't, apparently, an issue on a local wiki, unless there's some bizarre problem with Tidy.

It was probably that that caused the problem, as when I fixed it, it went smoothly through, though I don't understand why.

Probably caused by tidy, not really a bug though, the ids are invalid in html4. Wont be a problem with html5, though
