Description Tim Ivorson 2005-01-05 13:36:38 UTC
When trying to edit the Noted University of Sheffield Alumni section of , the edit section link
took me to the wrong section. Perhaps this problem occurs for pages containing
sections with similar names (the page also contains a Noted University of
Sheffield Faculty section and I seem to remember experiencing this problem for
another Wikipedia university page). Clicking on the link to edit the "see also"
section allowed me to edit the Noted University of Sheffield Alumni section.

The problem seems to be caused by this line in the page:

<h1 style="font: inherit; font-size: 100%; font-weight: bold; text-align:
center; border: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; color: #6a6c76;">University of

After replacing h1 by font, the section editing works fine.
Comment 2 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-01-05 23:51:38 UTC
I can confirm that there is a long-standing issue with <h1>, <h2>, etc, and the
section editing code; it seems that the code that chooses a section to edit
makes different assumptions from the code that inserts the "[edit]" links. This
is already covered by bug 966.
