Description Dan Smith 2004-12-23 18:55:31 UTC
Whenever a template is the first thing on a page, a large white space appears
between the article title and the template (and the page's text).
Comment 1 JeLuF 2004-12-23 19:09:57 UTC
There's a superfluous "<p><br></p>" before the table.
Apparently, the "<p>" gets inserted by default and is closed before starting the
I've no idea where the <br> is from.
If it's from MediaWiki, it should be a "<br />", so it might be "tidy" adding it.

Comment 3 Dan Smith 2005-02-13 05:54:32 UTC
It appears I was mistaken -- this applies only to templates and not tables.
Comment 4 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-04-12 04:01:24 UTC
Unable to reproduce this for templates, the table bug Jeluf talks about was a
bug however (in MediaWiki).
Comment 5 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-04-12 04:04:56 UTC
Marking it as a duplicate of bug 1343 until someone confirms that this happens
for templates which do not consist of tables.
