That also goes for lists (* and #).

Comment 2 T. Gries 2005-07-14 18:20:23 UTC
I also wanted to file these problems


is currently not correctly rendered (CVS)

I raised priority, because this will brake hundreds of pages...
Comment 3 Chris McKenna 2005-07-14 23:35:00 UTC
I have created a test page showing the rendering errors at

for a real-life example see (en:WP:FPC)
(the nominate and support line should be inside the <pre> box

note that as a workaround changing <pre>...</pre> to 
<pre><nowiki>...</nowiki></pre> appears to work - see my test

Comment 4 Chris McKenna 2005-07-14 23:38:11 UTC
just to make it explicit lists using * as well as : or # are also being rendered.
Comment 5 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-15 00:05:52 UTC
Most probably related to bug 785 fix :/
Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-15 02:27:05 UTC
Reverted part of 785 bug fix. Not sure why I though the part
was useless and deserved to be removed :o)

Comment 10 JeLuF 2005-07-22 22:15:01 UTC
Fixed in Parser.php, rev 1.482
Testcases for bug 785 still work fine. Not sure that this will be the final
word, though.
