VisualEditor: Behaviour of <pre> tags
Closed, InvalidPublic

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.
