Seems to be the same as T89163: Odd result: Subst'd template, or converted to HTML, or ???.

The DM html generated shows the problem here. The template consists of three children, the first two of which are categories. As categories are encoded as <link>s they are killed by the clipboard.

A separate problem is that the '<sup>' tag isn't getting a data-ve-ignore attribute, which is why we are seeing bad HTML, not just nothing. This is now T89658.
