Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-11-29 10:49:06 UTC
Having installed a new v1.5 wiki, I found that over 30 messages on
Special:Allmessages were highlighted in pink/green.  The two versions of these
messages appear identical, but are nonetheless being marked as different.

As well as several hard-to-check messages (e.g. Monobook.js) this applies to
various short messages, such as alreadyloggedin, historywarning and
ip_range_invalid which are short enough to easily see that the two versions of
the message are the same.

Expected behaviour: No messages would be highlighted, as no text has been
changed from the default.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-11-29 18:16:28 UTC
Looks like some of the messages have extra whitespace on the end in the language files; in wiki pages 
this gets trimmed...

'alreadyloggedin' => "<strong>User $1, you are already logged in!</strong><br />\n",

Appropriate fix would be to remove the trailing whitespace in the language files.
Comment 2 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-12-11 18:19:39 UTC
Cleaned language.php a bit.
Comment 3 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-12-11 18:43:36 UTC
Removed in HEAD all trailing \n from language files. Would be in 1.6.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-12-21 23:08:00 UTC
Still some literal newlines.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-12-21 23:28:33 UTC
Removed trailing newlines in HEAD.
