We already fix it for files. I think it should be easy to implement.

I had to remove http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jesper_Tyd%C3%A9n&diff=prev&oldid=385225373 the break line tag manually. Moreover, it was duplicated to the Persondata entry and I had to remove it from there too. I guess this addition will also fix https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:CHECKWIKI error 59.

Better in 7171 but there is a comma at the end. Check http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia%3AAutoWikiBrowser%2FSandbox&action=historysubmit&diff=386644715&oldid=386644570 here.

We just need to avoid: honorific prefix, honorific-prefix as the request says. I left a note to Infobox officeholder and they 'll probably fix this too.

Honorific-prefix, honorific-suffix changed and don't need break lines at the end anymore.

{{tl|nihongo}} is also a template that uses break line tags as I was hinted in my talk page.

*The point with hon-pref and hon-suf is that in some circs they want the pref and/or suff on the same line as the name, in others they don't. It would be bnest for the template to have the smarts to distinguish, but that would need work and consensus.

We now have a custom module for error 59.

Since bots run the custom module for a while now I wonder it it could be now part of general fixes.
