Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-05-07 09:49:03 UTC

I want to document a rendering difference with and without using Tidy here:

The core software renders empty list item differently as the rendering at the
Wikimedia Foundation projects:

See examples with
an empty numbered list item at
an empty bullet list item at

Please compare with

If a user makes such a change he should "see" whats wrong; however if such a
syntax is used by a blind person or a bot it would probably not be recognized.

Not shure about the request for this report. Should this be fixed or not?

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Reinhardt, I'm sorry it took so long for someone to respond to you.

I can no longer access those screenshots; can you still reproduce this problem?  Or do you think that perhaps it has been fixed now, in the newer versions of MediaWiki?

Comment 2 Gabriel Wicke 2013-11-21 22:18:04 UTC
This is still the case. Empty list items still go missing when tidy is enabled. They are however correctly rendered without tidy in both the PHP parser and Parsoid.
