Bug 5476 was claused be cause the MediaWiki message was changed where a <p> was
The software / the code was not touched.

I assume that a parsertest should be added about this topic.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

*If* HTML defines hierarhical levels for the entities <p>, <div>, <span> (etc.?)

Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-04-25 19:18:43 UTC
<center><font id="bug" />Hello world!‎</center> is useless and should
be fixed manually. We are not going to fix every stuff like that
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-26 02:24:03 UTC
Bugs in the parser are bugs and should be fixed.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-04-30 11:53:37 UTC
Fixed in trunk@13968, parsertest passed.

Added a parsertest.

The incorrectly self-closed tag is escaped and shown with &lt; / &gt;
