VisualEditor: ref warning appears within template that contains references, post-modification
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Screenshot

See the screenshot; I imagine the reference is being treated as existing within the template, rather than within the template within the page - it hunts for <references\>, can't find a tag in the template itself, and freaks the heck out.

The short-term fix is to just strip this comment from the returned HTML that the PHP parser gives us.

When we switch over to using Parsoid for this, we'll need that to run in context, somehow, so the references are correctly numbered and that we know to update the relevant reference lists.

These are now hidden by the above commit, which we're deploying in the next few minutes.

Should probably leave this open to track improvements.
