I removed any of 2016's CheckWiki output files. I kept 2017's files. It should be much lower now.

CheckWiki scans for HTML syntax for lists and section headers. A scan is made everyday at 0z. The amount of <li> and <h*> in articles dramatically increased on the May 5 0z scan. Scans since then have shown dramatically higher numbers. Something changed on May 4 as these errors were not present before then.

The problem is, tables don't end in just a }, they end with |}. So, {Retested 2013) shouldn't be showing up as table problem. Also, it is misleading and very hard to pinpoint the actual problem. I have been seeing these and thinking AWB caught a false positive.

I found this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Check_Wikipedia which lists some of the existing and working tools that are able to check some syntax issues. I believe they are all open source and some parts and algorithms could be used from these.

The tool database-thingy is at https://tools.wmflabs.org/checkwiki/ which is maintained by @Bgwhite who I cc'ed earlier.

So far, about 1/4 of the list contain false positives, sort of. They are not located in the middle of the table, but at the end. These cases, |-} should be replaced by |}. However, I've seen |-} come at the end of the table, followed by a template. The template closes off the table. Template {{Fb ps footer}} for example.

Content Translation tool uses Parsoid. Content Translation tool leaves copious amounts of zero-content annotations, including empty <span> tags. Therefore, Parsoid wasn't fixed. Correct?
