textlib.does_text_contain_section fails for encoded section title
Open, MediumPublic


An encoded section title like Talk_.28discussion.29_pages is not found by this method and textlib_tests.TestSectionFunctions.testNonAlphabeticalCharactersInSection fails.
Therefore that test is marked as expectedFailure but the method should be improved thus the decorator can be removed then.

Note that with T152540: Migrate to HTML5 section ids being resolved for MW 1.30, the algorithm for section title encoding has changed on Wikimedia projects. Although, according Manual:$wgFragmentMode the legacy method is still the default for new MediaWiki installations.
