Parsoid inserts <nowiki /> after a category, trying to protect against a linktrail that doesn't exist
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

<link rel="mw:WikiLink/Category" href="Category:Foo" />bar

serializes to

[[Category:Foo]]<nowiki />
bar

That nowiki is totally unnecessary, obviously.

Even when you edit an existing category that has data-parsoid info causing it to not have a trailing newline, you'll get [[Category:Foo]]<nowiki />Bar. That nowiki is also not needed because categories can't have link trails.
