So my reading of this is the graphical representation of:
are different. But from what I can see they are different in read mode as well, so I'm not sure this is a VE bug...
Looks like it is broken in read on Chrome, but in Firefox it only breaks due to VE's link nails. Until we have a reasonable alternative to link nails there is no way to fix this without breaking much more useful functionality.
I don't think so for two reasons:
- It is still an improvement on wikitext, where it will also render split as al[[qasb]]
- The fact it is broken in read mode on Chrome probably discourages people from creating content like this.
