extraneous semicolon appearing in watchlist view
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT

Description

There is what appears to be an errant hardcoded semicolon (";") appearing between separators of the watchlist.

Originally reported on enwiki in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#What%27s_with_the_semicolons_in_the_watchlist%3F

Seems to be related to the coding for:

::after

which is loading:

.mw-title::after {
    content: ';\00a0';
}

This is affecting recent changes as well as the watchlist.

On wikis that use Flow, it's even odder; these seem to have a "; ; " between the title and the timestamp. (Presumably they already had one and this has added another?)
