Description Fyren 2006-10-09 11:25:39 UTC
If you include a non-existent category into an article by "{{Category:Foo}}" or
"{{:Category:Foo}}" then the article will be placed in Category:Foo (assuming
that Category:Foo doesn't exist). Nothing visible is rendered for the inclusion.
 The expected behavior is probably to render a red link to the category.

A single colon should fix this.  I don't think it'll break any possible titles
that can find their way to that point.
