Defect #31838

Updated by Go MAEDA almost 3 years ago

In case where wiki link is followed by opening parenthesis, it seems like parsing goes wild. For instance this sequence:


One two [[three|The Three]] (four) five.

should produce this output:

> One two _The Three_ (four) five.

but it produces this:

> One two _[three|The Three]_ five.

It actually acts, as external link, where "four" is the URL, but:
* there is a space between last closing square bracket and opening parenthesis (I would understand this behavior when there would be no space),
* square brackets are doubled, but external link mode took precedence over wiki link.

Currently one needs to escape opening parenthesis with backslash to force parser to see such a sequence as wiki link, not external link. IMO this looks like a glitch.
