Summary: <math>equation</math> inside [[internal reference
                    link]] not shown in blue.
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Redirects

Version:    1.16alpha-wmf(r59858).  I did not find this version in your list.

Hardware:   Toshiba Satellite L305.
OS:         Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium.

            Although I have not tested this bug in any other environment,
            I would be surprised if this bug were less than universal.

Component:  I used your Redirects category to report this minor bug because
            I could not find a category for internal cross reference link bugs.

Context:    If you are writing a mathematical article and you wish to create
            an internal cross reference reference link for a mathematical
            expression, you will want to enclose your <math>expression</math>
            in [[ ]], like [[actual page#section|<math>expression</math>]].

Problem:    A link like [[actual page#section|<math>expression</math>]] works
            correctly.  The only problem is that <math>expression<math> does
            not show in blue, so most readers will not know this is a link.
            <math></math> undoes the blue color in the text of the link.

Workaround: You cannot use <math>expression</math> as the text of the link.
            Instead you must rewrite the mathematical expression using HTML
            syntax with all the &special;, <sub></sub>, and <sup></sup> tags.
