If I have a [[Wikipedia:test|]] link inside <ref></ref> tags, the link won't render correctly and the wiki markup will remain just as I typed it, However, if I remove the pipe (|), the link renders fine as <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/test">test</a> (test HTML link--hope it works). This can be annoying for interwiki linking (as I do on http://www.tnlc.com/wiki/index.php?title=action where I link extensively to Wikipedia but I had to change all the links inside ref tags that used this pipe trick).
OK, not being able to edit posts is REALLY annoying... The <a href> link should be a normal link without all that code...
Looks like bug 2700 -- this is a general issue with how certain things are handled in wikitext in combination with extensions. I'll go ahead and dupe this bug to it so it doesn't get separated.
