The page [[wikipedia:How does one edit a page]] is
rendered differently under the new software than under
the old. (The right column.) Apparently, the old code
ignored wiki markup inside <pre>..</pre>, while the new
doesn't.

    Personally, I think it makes more sense the new way. "PRE"
    is supposed to mean nothing but "preformatted", i.e., that
    the text should be rendered with line breaks and indents
    preseved. Even in HTML, things link links can appear inside
    PRE, so why shouldn't things like [[link]]? The old way
    does make it easy to import code, for example, but that can
    still be done with NOWIKI, so we only gain functionality
    with the new way.

    I posted a message to the list for comment, and got exactly
    zero responses. I'm going to close this; if lots of complaints
    suddenly arise, they can open it again.
