Multi-template 'content' bits should not be editable
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

As discussed earlier and documented in http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Parsoid/MediaWiki_DOM_spec#Template_content, content bits interspersed between multi-part templates should not be editable, as they cannot be easily escaped. We currently don't perform any escaping on these, so changes of these by the user can break the page in very non-WYSIWYG ways.

Need to do HTML templates first; this is premature.

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.
