MediaWiki currently renders nested <sub> tags just fine, but tidy is rejecting it and
rewriting the output.

I'm not sure why; accepts it just fine. May be a bug in tidy.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
