Event Timeline

There is an invisible Unicode character U+200E ( after the "16:32", which is causing the timestamp parser not to match it.

It's sometimes added by browsers when copy-pasting text. It was added in this edit, when this user added a signature to an unsigned comment:, probably by copy-pasting the username (IP address) and date from page history.

We should probably try to support this, although I don't think it's a very common workflow.

Good spot, Bartosz. I'm going to move this to "Nice to have."

I will also plan to include this in T245858
