VisualEditor: Editing surface displays non-existent spaces after bullet points in Thai Wikipedia
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Image of issue

Upon loading VE in Thai wikipedia in an article with a bulleted list, spaces are added after bullets in the edit view. Attempts to remove the spaces remove the preceding bullet. Spaces are not added upon Save, but will lead to confusion for editors.

Duplicated in FF, Chrome. Ubuntu, OS 10.6.8

Also in the same image, at the end of reference section
(in Thai {{รายการอ้างอิง}}) and immediately before {{stub}} (in Thai
{{โครงกฎหมาย}}), VE displayed additional blank line where it should
not do so.

This is because the Thai Wikipedia has this CSS in its Common.css:

/* A request by octahedron80 19:13, 7 ธันวาคม 2554 (ICT) */
.mw-content-ltr dd, .mw-content-rtl .mw-content-ltr dd {
margin-left: 2.5em;
}
.mw-content-ltr ul, .mw-content-rtl .mw-content-ltr ul {
margin-left: 2.5em;
}
.mw-content-ltr ol, .mw-content-rtl .mw-content-ltr ol {
margin-left: 2.5em;
}

There's no justification for it beyond who requested it, so I can't judge whether the purpose it serves is sufficient, but it's deliberate.

As this is based on local wiki configuration, marking as INVALID.
