Description peter 2006-03-29 08:00:24 UTC
As I announced at 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia%3AVillage_pump_(technical)#SGML_comment_oddity 
an SGML comment is rendered (in a badly mangled way) on screen when inserted 
between REF and /REF. I provide a simplified example of this at 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User%3AHoary/Minima 
 
(This is my first ever bug report here; apologies if I'm filing it in the wrong way.)

Comment 3 wally kramer 2006-05-09 18:02:56 UTC
Encountered this situation by using http://teamgamer.org/cgi-bin/wikirefs.pl
(aka "Ref converter") where the citation note had the html comment <b>&lt;!--
expand note later --></b> in it.  It appears the converter did the right--at
least expected--thing and moved the comment (along with the rest of the note)
into the &lt;ref> ... &lt/ref> citation.  Upon expansion and resolution,
&lt;references /> has
"UNIQ5e18725c71ac5e7e-HTMLCommentStrip140f36514a165f5700000001" where the
comment was.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-06-01 05:12:21 UTC
Improvements to extension stripping that I'm working on fix
this. Should be committed soon.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2006-06-01 06:28:44 UTC
Fixed in r14508.
