alt attribute for Wikipedia wordmark has html in it on mobile site
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


The wikipedia mobile site has the following html in the footer:

<li id="footer-info-mobile-switcher"><h2><img src="/static/images/mobile/wikipedia-wordmark-en.png" alt="Wikipedia&lt;sup&gt;®&lt;/sup&gt;" height="15" width="97" /><sup>®</sup></h2>

With images disabled (on my browser), this creates output like:


[The last ® being superscript].

This looks rather silly. There is no ® even in the image. It shouldn't be in the alt text, and definitely shouldn't be there twice.
