Description Random832 2008-01-23 15:21:36 UTC
Right now, if someone closes a <ref> tag with <ref> instead of </ref>, a lot of content gets shoved down into the reference, but there's no boldface red text to say what has gone wrong. My suggestion: if <ref> is detected inside a <ref> tag, it is an error; an error message should show up at the location of the <ref> tag.

Please review, it's an easy fix.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2008-06-17 21:59:16 UTC
Looks straightforward; this is a good candidate for adding a parser test case to make sure it doesn't regress. (to citeParserTests.txt)
