Description Zoran Obradovic 2005-10-30 14:13:26 UTC
Currently, transclusion doesn't work on .css and .js pages. It would be good to
enable it, since it would allow users to easily install and uninstall js tools
and style enhancements made by other users. Instead of copying a chunk of
javascript, a user could just put {{User:Lupin/popups.js}} on their .js page.
Even better, we could have prepared templates and users could use something like
{{Tools/Popups|layout=menus|redirect=0}} for easy coniguration.

{{ is not normally used in either js or css, and where it needs to be used (e.g.
inside strings) it can be escaped.

This would be highly unsafe.
