I played around with the example page https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Dog (and others) and noticed a misbehavior that worries me quite much. First, I wondered about some broken HTML in the references section:
<span class="mw-cite-backlink"> <span class="mw-cite-up-arrow">^</span> <a class="mw-cite-up-arrow-backlink" aria-label="Jump back up" title="Jump back up" href="#cite_ref-5">^</a> <b><a href="#cite_ref-5" aria-label="Jump up" title="Jump up" class=""></a></b> </span>
Notice that the line with the <b> is a broken link with no text.
Steps to reproduce:
- Go to https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Dog.
- Find a footnote in the article, e.g. the , and click it.
- Use the little ^ to jump back up.
- Look for another footnote, e.g. , and click it.
- Now check the little ^ in the 5th footnote you clicked before. It's not a link any more, but text.
