Create way for TemplateData to use wikitext and separate out description
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

There are two severe limitations of TemplateData that are preventing it from being used more widely as the default documentation style. The first is that it isn't possible to add links or other wikitext in the description, and the second is that a description is required to avoid an ugly "no description" marker, but it's impossible to separate out this description to place it elsewhere in the documentation. I'm guessing these things have been brought up before at some point, but I can't find the existing phab task (this might be it but it's somehow been deleted), so I'm creating a new ticket as this is an important issue that needs to be resolved for the community to start using TemplateData as much as desired.
