For several applications I need the possibility to have [[Internal]] and
[http://www.external.org] links rendered in [[MediaWiki:Tagline]] strings.
Currently, this is not the case.
For me it looks like a bug, because the other similar message
[[MediaWiki:sitenotice]] which is shown above the page title, allows both
[[Internal]] and [http://www.external.org] links !

This is "how it is". MediaWiki messages are / can be handeled differently. I
experienced this for many messages. The only way to find it out is to look in
the php code, to use the trial and error method *and* to hope that the message
will not be handeled differently in comming releases.
This is at least the *third* bug report on that topic during the last three
days. I proposed some times ago
Bug 2453: [[Special:Allmessages]] should provide information about the type of
the MediaWiki message
A common table with these types could help
a) to generate this type information in [[Special:Allmessages]]
b) to use common functions where this additional information is implemented /

can someone _please_ fix that problem, that tagline does neither allow HTML nor
Wiki-syntax links ?
I need that working
You selected 1.5-cvs. Is it fixed in HEAD?
is a duplicate description of Comment #8 in bugzilla 3208
When can we expect to have this solved ?

Rob, i just checked this for MediaWiki:tagline : NOT fixed in HEAD, i.e. wiki
syntax in tagline is ignored. Should be pleased solved -- who can solve this and
similar inconsistently not working wiki formatting in certain message text ?

For those who need [[MediaWiki:tagline]] messages with HTML and Wiki-formatted texts (which is currently not
possible), the attached very simple patch is suggested for CVS-HEAD and similar products:
change line 84 (or search for 'tagline')
<h3 id="siteSub"><?php $this->msg('tagline') ?></h3>
<h3 id="siteSub"><?php $this->msgWiki('tagline') ?></h3>
I will submit a regular patch as soon as the cvs access to sf.net is working again (which is currently not the
case for me for an unknown reason).
I also ask the experts to review my patch - if it could negative side effects
