Wikisource: Investigate/fix text alignment issues when conflict between exports and templates
Open, Needs TriagePublic


As a Wikisource user, I want templates related to text alignment to be compatible and accurately reflected in ebook downloads, so I can read texts (such as poetry) with the proper text alignment and indentation.

Example of issue: --> download as pdf or mobi to see alignment issues, most likely due to compatibility issues related to floating quotation mark template

Acceptance Criteria:

  • Investigate primary potential sources of issues related to alignment issues
  • Investigate the primary work that would need to be done in order to improve alignment consistency
  • Investigate the main challenges, risks, and possible dependencies associated with implementing such changes
  • Provide a general estimate/idea, if possible, of the potential impact such changes would have on text alignment
    • In other words, do we have a strong hunch that this work could, indeed, improve text alignment consistency? Why or why not?
  • Provide a general estimation/rough sense of the level of difficulty of effort required in doing such work

Visual Examples:
Example #1 (accessing PDF with Pages): Note that there are spaces between lines 11 & 12, which should not occur
