           Summary: Italic text should not contain trailing spaces
           Product: VisualEditor
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

    Classification: Unclassified

In VisualEditor, enter


This will result in wiki text 

   one ''two ''three

but clearly

   one ''two'' three

was intended. I don't think a trailing (or leading?) space in italic/bold
wikitext is ever appropriate.

The fixed Bug 33108 is similar but deals with selected text.

I believe some of the hostility towards VE in the Wikipedia community results
from issues like this: editors with long watchlists feel they have to clean up
after many such VE edits.
