Description Cœur 2007-01-25 13:33:53 UTC
Description: When an article has many references, they won't wrap at the end of the line.

Origine: the reference numbers are separated by a non-breaking space & #160 ; (U+A0).

Fix: the reference numbers should be separated by a normal space (U+20).
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2007-02-03 13:11:40 UTC
The separator is set by using messages in the i18n file:

'cite_references_link_many_sep' => "\xc2\xa0",
'cite_references_link_many_and' => "\xc2\xa0",

Maybe they can just be removed, I am not sure if anyone would ever
need to customize them.
Comment 2 ais523 2007-02-05 09:11:19 UTC
On enwiki, the messages have already been customized to a breaking space as a 
workaround for this bug: [[:w:en:MediaWiki:Cite references link many and]]. Nobody 
seems to have complained yet, so changing the messages to be breaking spaces ( ) 
should fix the problem.

Fixed in r19790.
