[[ or ]] in the middle of a link are not <nowiki>ed
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

English Wikipedia user Atethnekos reports:
"If I type "Fra]]nce" and then select that entire text and make it a link to [[France]], after I save it, the link anchor ends up appearing just as "France" followed by a non-anchor "]]""

The wikitext saved is: Three men from [[France|Fra]]nce]] went to sea.

But it displays in view mode and subsequent edits as: Three men from [[France]]]] when to sea.

{{ and }} in the middle of links are nowiki-ed but [[ is not.

Parsoid issue, presumably?

Heh ... for a change, this bug report is asking for nowikis ;-)

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.
