Table with the header from a template not recognised
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Take this page:

https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_kastelen_in_West-Vlaanderen

It is basically formatted as a table, only the header comes from a template for consistency over all lists. When I tried to edit the table, it doesn't recognize a table, only a template and if you edit it sees the table as content that can be edited as wikitext although technically it falls outside the template.

Is this case better recognisable so it can be edited normally as a table?

Maybe? There's a long discussion about balanced templates in T114445

Tables constructed in this manner are very difficult to correctly support, so this is very low priority for the Editing team to fix.
