Description:
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).

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.

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.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
