{{DISPLAYTITLE}} is displaying >'s as > to the user

Author: carlb613

In a current SVN version, {{DISPLAYTITLE}} appears to be making one too many text->HTML translations.

What appears to the users contains HTML codes like > instead of >

Remove any characters subject to substitution (such as < or >) and {{DISPLAYTITLE}} is otherwise usable.

Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Medium.Nov 21 2014, 9:36 PM
bzimport added a project: MediaWiki-Parser.
bzimport set Reference to bz9941.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

< and > are converted pretty early on in various things.

{{DISPLAYTITLE}} however should not even be allowing them, since they are not legal title characters... it _should_ only allow titles that normalize to the same normalized title as the page has. (But the current implementation I think does not make this restriction as it should.)
