VisualEditor adds strange <article> and <footer> tags to page content
Open, Stalled, NormalPublic

Description

Unsure what the IP user exactly did, but the content of the initial revision of this page looks strange:

https://pl.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Strona:Karol_May_-_Przez_pustyni%C4%99_tom_1.djvu/2&oldid=1579899

It seems some extra non-standard tags are added to page content as well as footer content was moved to the main page content.

I suggest disabling VE for Page namespace in non-test wikis if such behaviour cannot be easily fixed.

We'll need more information on how to reproduce this in order to diagnose the problem.

I should note that I ran a search and there are no other occurrences of "<article>" anywhere in the Polish Wikisource. There are only three occurrences anywhere in the English Wikisource. Based on all available data, this appears to be a very rare problem. Disabling VisualEditor as a result of a very rare problem is out of the question.

No idea what the above-mentioned IP did.

@Deskana This tag appaered in only one already fixed edit (not a top one) mentioned above. No more edits is expected to appear as such broken ones are blocked by AbuseFilter now.
Their evidence might appear in AbuseLog only. I do not think pl.ws to be a test site for random users.
