Description Luna Santin 2008-07-11 22:15:28 UTC
Any use of a <ref> tag inside a {{formatnum:}} seems to result in a UNIQ marker getting dumped into the final output.

Specifically, I am looking at an enwiki article[1]. An infobox on the page[2] formats one variable using formatnum, and in this case the variable includes a ref tag (which in turn includes a citation template[3]).

As best as I can tell, the only steps necessary to reproduce this are to use any formatnum with any ref. I specifically tested this with {{formatnum:<ref>Hi</ref>}} if that helps any.

You cannot user <tags> inside formatnum, but the way it currently fails is probably not the best either.
Comment 2 Niklas Laxström 2008-07-12 07:55:24 UTC
It may be possible to use {{#tag:}} to force correct parsing order.
