Description Thana 2010-05-11 01:45:57 UTC
i personally won't compete for sig-fail of the week, but suppose i post
the following wiki-text on a page:

>   <font color="green">[[name]]</font>
>   <span style="background:pink;"> [[talk]] </span>

two tidyings will occur during "normal" parsing, to wit...

the nesting of tags <font> and <a> is inverted:
>   <a href="/wiki/Name" title="Name"><font color="green">name</font></a>

spaces are moved outside the <span>:
>   <span style="background:pink;"><a href="/wiki/Talk"
>        title="Talk">talk</a></span>

however, the signature preview on special:prefs does not reflect either
of these changes, probably creates other surprises as well.
