VE mixing HTML and wikitext syntax for tables
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hi,

In this edit:

  • VE created a table in HTML syntax in a big blob, not easily editable for other contributors
  • VE created a table with mixed syntax (mostly wikitext, but parts HTML)

In both cases, the tables are created with incorrect attributes (the href attributes have nothing to do with the content)

There's also some <b> tags, and even a <b/> which is invalid HTML5...

I already reported such problems in T116460 which is marked as solved, but the problem is still there

This dewiki edit likely exhibits the same problem.

We are in touch with the user and waiting for them to try to replicate the issue. They copied the table from another article, but I was not able to reproduce the issue.
