Description Tels 2005-07-07 16:33:13 UTC
I have setup some templates that use their parameters in something like:

<pre style="width={{{w}}}em">{{{txt}}}</pre>

With Mediawiki 1.3.x, this worked fine both for "w" and "txt". With 1.4.x,
the first parameter (w) gets replaced by HTML-escaping of the { (aka &#123;
or something) and thus the template breaks because "w" is no longer included.

The resulting source looks like:

<pre style="width=&#123;&#123;&#123;w}}}em">My Text</pre>

which is neither valid HTML nor the Right Thing[tm].

I would like to get the behaviour of 1.3.x back because my wiki relies on it
in a great number of templates; for instance a percentage bar that you can
call like:


Note: Bug #591 might be about the same case.

Uhm, of course I just read that bug 2309 probably fixed exactly my problem. I
did not include fixed bugs in my search. *sigh*
