Bug in MW1.6.3 in HTML TABLES included in Wiki text

Hans Voss
Hi All,

Summary:
I seem to have this problem with MW1.6.x in not properly recognising closing
HTML < /TABLE > tags. (1.6.0 had it, 1.6.3 still has it, not up to
implementing 1.6.5 yet)

Situation
I have several pages (including some templates) that use HTML table
definitions, because (at the time?) I couldn't get the proper nested tables
working with Wiki markup.
So whenever I required nested tables I used HTML < TABLE > etc. tags

What happens
Now it when I view those pages (even after an edit/save cycle) I actually
see the < /TABLE > HTML tag in the Wiki output and the table doesn't get
closed (everything after the closing tag still ends up in the table).

Am I forgetting to insert an option somewhere or do I now need to include
those close tags in the 'allowed HTML' code somewhere?

BTW: I don't mind a small bit of hacking to the PHP code, I already did that
to allow me to use some more JavaScript.
(Yeah, yeah I know, but it is my personal wiki, looking on 'localhost'
only).

Please provide the URL to a page containing a sample of such failing code. It is
in general difficult to comment on a problem without specific information.

do you always put a space between < and / ? I kno html don't
worry, but it's the first think I see in your mail :-)

OK, I solved my own problem.

I couldn't provide a URL to Brion's request (server only runs on
localhost/127.0.0.1) so I was preparing a specific page I could save as HTML
save wiki text etc.etc.etc. for an archive.

Then 'all of a sudden' the problem was gone. Seems that this version of MW
is more serious about closing all the HTML tags that require closing (like
TD and TR tags).

I edited the original offending page to properly close all tags (table, tr
and td) and the problem was indeed gone.

Sorry to have bothered you all.

No, I do not use spaces, only for the mail, like <nowiki> tags in wiki
