Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

This source:
;Well :this is ok
;Ooops http://this.renders.wrong :though
;Ooops [http://this.renders.wrong too] :ack!

Renders as:
         this is ok
Ooops http
         //this.renders.wrong :though
Ooops [http
         //this.renders.wrong too] :ack!

which is a bit unintuitive. The URLs perhaps ought to
be parsed before the ;s and :s are separated.

In Usemod, this rendered as the expected:
        this is ok
Ooops http://this.renders.wrong
Ooops [too]

Phase II seems to have had the same error as phase III.
It doesn't come up often though, as definition lists
are extremely rare. I found one in the FAQ though, and
it barfs when I try to put URL links into the entry (;)

Tested in current 1.3; still awful, it's also invalid markup:

>This source:

Well this is ok
Ooops //this.renders.wrong" 
class='external'>http://this.renders.wrong :though
Ooops //this.renders.wrong' 
class='external'>too (http://
this.renders.wrong) :ack!

Partial fix is checked in, but not yet complete. See demo:
Comment 1 Wil Mahan 2004-09-27 21:17:54 UTC
All the test cases mentioned should be fixed in HEAD.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-03-10 03:39:56 UTC
Fixed in 1.4, resolving.
