Parsing of bold and italics
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Sometime in the last 48 hours or so, problems have
started to show up in articles where bold and italic text
are nested. Aircraft and ship articles often use this kind
of formatting, and while it's possible to "force" the
parser to render the text correctly by inserting a white
space, this is affecting existing articles...

See examples at [[CASA C-101]], [[Transall C-160]],
[[HMS Queen Elizabeth (1913)]]

Patch against current CVS

Ouch. I'm responsible for this. :)

The attached patch suggests a possible fix. I can't test it now because my
local installation is not working. If you can test it, please do so and set the
'reviewed' keyword if it's working correctly.

Installed bugfix on live servers.

The bug is fixed, but old pages may still display the broken rendering due to page and parse caching. After they are edited, they should show
