VisualEditor: Auto-numbering CSS for external links should also apply to generated content
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

At the end of the first paragraph there is reference #1.
If you scroll to the reference list, it will look empty.

Actually, the reference, which can be edited, contains an unnamed link.
The markup guide for en.wp says these links are "Only used within article body
for footnotes", so it makes sense that VE should display them correctly.

This happened because the numbered link was generated by a template (indirectly in this case: it was in the references list which was in turn generated by {{reflist}}), and the CSS we use to do the numbering didn't account for numbered links in templates.

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.
