Description Colin Pitts 2005-06-09 23:38:24 UTC
As seen on
there is an extra bracket in the [[Category:Fluid dynamics]]] link.

This caused the page to sort under ] in the category, which is unexpected
behavior. Sort keys are supposed to be separated from the category name by a |
character. Because the extra bracket is swallowed, there is no indication of the
incorrect syntax on the page itself.

Expected behavior would be for the trailing bracket to be rendered in the page,
and for the page to be sorted under its title.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-10 00:32:51 UTC
Remove the extra bracket so it sorts correctly.

The general case is already reported at bug 2095, and mostly fixed for 1.5.
