Normally, whitespace is stripped from the beginning and end of template parameters. When the parameter is unnamed, however, whitespace stripping does not occur. In [[m:Help:Newlines and spaces]] and [[m:Help:Template#Stripping of spaces and newlines]], this is described as a "probable bug", and I agree, since there appears to be no logical reason for the inconsistency. It also leads to unexpected results and confusion in Wikipedia template calls, and there is no apparent workaround. Can this inconsistency be addressed?
