Description Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-09-23 17:22:17 UTC
Copying from CR:

"$html = str_replace( ' <', '&#32;<', $html );" – commented only with a link to bug 53086, apparently ugly workaround for some bug or feature

"if ( wfIsWindows() ) { $html = str_replace( '&#13;', '', $html ); }" – not commented on at all

Supported CSS selectors for remove() are not documented.

elementsToFlatten functionality uses very simple regexes for the transformation; it should be documented that it only works correctly if the elements have no attributes, lest someone use it for HTML sanitization.
