VisualEditor: Structural content inside a <small> should be alienated but this fails because they are inline rather than inline-block
Open, NormalPublic


In an (un)ordered list nested in a table I am unable to edit wikilinks. While hovering above a wikilink the wikilink is an active weblink, instead of showing the icon of the link inspector, see URL.

Block nodes (like lists) in inline positions (like in <small>) get alienated as inline aliens. These inline aliens then don't get shields and phantoms with the right dimensions. One way to fix that could be to make alienInline display:inline-block instead of display:inline, which seems to fix the dimensions of the shield, but we'd have to carefully evaluate that as it would potentially impact a lot of things.
