Rendering problem with empty list item and next section
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: gangleri


I want to document a rendering difference with and without using Tidy here:

The core software renders empty list item differently as the rendering at the
Wikimedia Foundation projects:

See examples with
an empty numbered list item at
an empty bullet list item at

Please compare with

If a user makes such a change he should "see" whats wrong; however if such a
syntax is used by a blind person or a bot it would probably not be recognized.

Not shure about the request for this report. Should this be fixed or not?

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Reinhardt, I'm sorry it took so long for someone to respond to you.

I can no longer access those screenshots; can you still reproduce this problem? Or do you think that perhaps it has been fixed now, in the newer versions of MediaWiki?


This is still the case. Empty list items still go missing when tidy is enabled. They are however correctly rendered without tidy in both the PHP parser and Parsoid.

The example items are fixed after Remex. Closing accordingly.
