As per this analysis, this is one of the bigger sources of nowiki insertions right now.

This should be fixed for new nodes. As with T107774, we need to come up with a more general solution for modified content, which may mean doing normalizations after dom diff'ing.

Is it also working for |+ ?

Is it also working for |+ ?

Yes. This will likely be deployed today. However, this will not yet solve all the nowiki issues in this context. Edited content will still see nowikis. I am going to try and tackle that separately in a more general fashion.

I agree that scrubWikitext is probably not the right place for this; we need a more general mechanism to specify possible wikitext escapes other than just throwing <nowiki> around.

ssastry claimed this task.

With the deployment today that allows normalization of edited content, i think we can call this done. There are a couple minor tweaks to be done to this, but the nowiki part of this should itself be resolved. Please reopen if this shows up again.
