Description Zigger 2005-06-28 13:25:52 UTC
& is not being escaped to & within the category titles for a normal page or
a category page.

If a page contains "[[Category:A & B]]", the category list entry text is
rendered in (X)HTML as "A & B" instead of "A & B".  v1.4.5 renders this
correctly.

Has this been fixed in the meantime?

- HTML source shows & to me
-
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_II_of_England
  says it's valid XHTML.

=> Closing, please reopen if not fixed.

No

Look for "English & British", it's one of the category titles.

True.  But it's parse tree shows the unescaped &.  So I should try looking-up /
reporting a bug there sometime.  Tidy finds the error.

Reopened.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-06-28 19:40:27 UTC
Specifically:

<a href="/wiki/Category:Heirs_to_the_English_%26_British_thrones" 
title="Category:Heirs to the English &amp; British thrones">Heirs to the English & 
British thrones</a>
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-06-28 20:00:06 UTC
Ok, fixed now in CVS HEAD and live:
<a href="/wiki/Category:Heirs_to_the_English_%26_British_thrones" 
title="Category:Heirs to the English &amp; British thrones">Heirs to the English 
&amp; British thrones</a>

Removed parsertext keywords; the parser test framework cannot cover this as it's 
outside of the main text output.
