Whitespace between == == headers should be insignificant
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whitespace within == == headers is not insignificant.

It should be, as this makes it harder to use the DoEditSectionLink hook to add more inline elements after or before the heading (they will display slightly differently depending on whether ==Heading== or == Heading == was used).

(This isn't visible when using Tidy, as Wikimedia sites do, as it strips the spaces. It can be seen in the resulting HTML on Tidy-less wikis, though.)

Hrm, the spaces should be insignificant *in* the HTML output. What exactly are the differences you're seeing?

== Headline == and ==Headline== should always yield <h3><span class="mw-headline" id="Headline">Headline</span></h3>, and never <h3><span class="mw-headline" id="Headline"> Headline </span></h3> (note the spaces).

Also see the parser tests changes on the patch for a more precise description :)

Yeah, but those spaces shouldn't cause any rendering difference... but maybe they do. Meh. :D

They will once bug 41729 is fixed. :)
