When typing the following string in the edit box of a MediaWiki page:
<nowiki>Some text # a comment</nowiki>
it's being rendered as:
Some text # a comment
That is, all spaces except one before the '#' are removed.
If this is by design, please change it. Otherwise, please fix it. I would very much dislike having to work around
this by using a bunch of 's
Even your bug reporting system removes the spaces! That makes it hard to report this type of bug.
The text (with spaces replaced by _) entered in the edit box shound have read:
Read the source of this page. What you are seeing is the browser collapsing
multiple whitespace charcters into one. If preservation of spaces is important,
Read the source - it sure looks like I would expect.
I wasn't aware of that tag. Thanks for telling me.
