Description Raimond Spekking 2006-10-09 14:44:09 UTC
If <math> failed to parse due to an unknown/invalid argument, e.g.
<math>\abcdef</math> the errormessage contains the wrong argument twice:

"Failed to parse (unknown error\abcdef): \abcdef"

[[MediaWiki:math_failure]] ([[MediaWiki:math_unknown_error]] argument): argument

Please delete the first output of the argument.
Comment 1 JeLuF 2007-05-27 21:56:38 UTC
It's only the same if the formula has only one function. The second "argument" in the error message is the entire formula.

The real bug is that it says "unkown error" instead of "unkown function".
Comment 2 Nicholas Longo 2011-05-02 18:28:20 UTC
Not sure when the change occured, but the error message now produced is "unknown function" and as commented in comment 1 the output argument is not really duplicate.
