VisualEditor: Reference should use system messages to work out their rendering style (e.g. 1.0, 1.1 / a,b,c)
OpenPublic

Description

There are a couple of ways to configure references to display differently:

we should access these so the rendering in edit mode is consistent with the that in read mode.

I think that this is the same problem:

Footnotes created with the ref group <ref group=lower-alpha> are displayed in the saved page as [a], [b], etc. If you open them in VisualEditor, they display (while editing) as [lower-alpha 1], [lower-alpha 2], etc. instead of [a], [b], etc.

Column Prototype
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.
