Description Timwi 2004-09-03 03:08:08 UTC

Conerning the edit buttons that appear to the right of each section 
on a wiki page: My "first" section has two edit buttons. The left 
edit button is for section 1, the right edit button is for section 0. I 
immediately thought section 0 must be the first section, and 
section 1 must be the second section. I didn't know why there were 
two sections, so I clicked Edit for section 1, cut the contents, saved 
it, clicked Edit for section 0, pasted the contents, and saved. When 
I went back the page was just the same as before. When when I 
went to edit section 0, it was empty, and section 1 was just the 
way it was before. I added a section 2, and sections 1 and 2 work 

The problem can be seen in action here:

This is expected behaviour.  The "section 0" is the text before the first heading.
