Description Derk-Jan Hartman 2010-04-03 13:29:25 UTC
{{#if:a| #ee2222|CornFlowerBlue}} introduces a linebreak before outputting #ee2222, causing the formation of a numbered list, but {{#if:a|bogus|CornFlowerBlue}} does not output a linebreak.

Note, as work around, {{#if:a| #ee2222|CornFlowerBlue}} works fine. (  -> space before it gets interperted as css.

This might be a duplicate Bug 12974 (that seems to be more to do with tables, but probably same underlying issue)

{{#if:a|<nowiki />#ee2222|CornFlowerBlue}} also works.
Comment 3 Thana 2010-04-05 10:54:17 UTC
The usual behavior of the parser-function is to trim white-
space from its input, so I'd speculate #*:; are deliberate
exceptions to this, probably to _guarantee_ a line-break
with the following input, which may be a more common case:

List:{{#ifeq: {{{lang}}} | español | 

Note: even without these symbols being a special case you
could preserve the otherwise eaten line-break manually by
putting "<nowiki />" at the end of the first line.
