More than one HTML comment at the start of a line causes line contents to be passed through without conversion to wikitext
Closed, ResolvedPublic


At en.wp, Fram provided a description of how to "trick" VE into showing some markup without actually typing it.

<<Start from an "empty" page (it contains some hidden comments, but since you can't remove these with VE...): [].

Start a simple article in the normal way, with a header and some text.[]

Now reopen that page in VE: [] Hey presto, I get <nowiki>== Test ==</nowiki> instead of the actual header appearance, due to the invisible and unremovable hidden comments. >>

I was able to reproduce this, see .
