  2. While in VE mode, position caret few characters before any {{lang}} template (e.g. "saura" row in the table of "S" section of the above article)

This may be Chrome-specific or Windows-specific; I can't reproduce this in Safari 6.1.4 or Firefox 30 on Mac OS 10.8.5.

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.
