In Wikipedia, a single-bracketed link in an article will incorrectly 
appear with a space inserted after it in the article text. See 'http://', which has lots of single-
bracketed links. Here are some examples:

This [ link in single brackets], blah blah

  becomes: This link in single brackets , blah blah

(This footnote [])

  becomes: (This footnote [1] )

Blah blah []; blah blah

  becomes: Blah blah [2] ; blah blah

This problem appears to have been fixed in cvs.

This is caused by tidy. If wgUseTidy is "false", the page is
rendered correctly.

Comment 2 Timwi 2004-10-15 07:22:54 UTC
This is already fixed in newest CVS.
Comment 3 Timwi 2004-10-15 07:33:38 UTC
Actually, it's also fixed in REL1_3 CVS, it seems.
Comment 4 Paul Pogonyshev 2004-12-23 16:29:58 UTC
It is not fixed.  I can observe this bug even after the recent engine update.
Comment 5 JeLuF 2005-01-02 22:41:48 UTC
I opened a ticket for tidy, and this is the response:

So I added a   where the space used to be.
Comment 6 Chris Wood 2005-06-03 23:13:09 UTC
That bug seems to me to be a different issue. Is this fixed or not?
Comment 7 Zigger 2005-06-04 00:10:06 UTC
(In reply to comment #6)
The three test cases are working correctly on and (v1.4.5) and (v1.5alpha2).  If this is
broken elsewhere, please provide details.
