Description

VE allows editing text between <pre>...</pre> tags.
That is, you seem to be able, for example, to add working wikilinks and references. Once you save though, everything is rendered as wikicode, as in [[France]] and <ref>France</ref>, and of course is not clickable.
Thryduulf argues that "VE shouldn't show it as working if it won't work after saving".

Content that is pre-formatted is not wrapped in <pre> tags but with space-indented-preformatting, which does work with wikitext structures.

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.
