           Summary: Every edit page has a useless "page notice" when
                    viewed in text browsers

For ***text browsers, and Firefox when you turn off ALT V Y N (stylesheets)***,
every edit page on the English Wikipedia (and maybe other) shows a 'Page
notice'.
E.g., for the above URL, it is
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Editnotices/Page/One_(David_Karp_novel)&action=edit&redlink=1
... a redlink of all things!

Here's the useless HTML.
One sees it tries to hide in a "display none",
I thought that was already decided as a bad thing to do.
Just don't inject it if you don't want to splatter it into search engines and
peoples text browsers, phones, etc.
                                                <!-- start content -->
            <div id="editnotice-area" class="editnotice-area" style="clear:
both; width: 100%;"><div class="editnotice-link editnotice-redlink sysop-show
accountcreator-show" style="margin: 0px 0.8em; padding: 0pt; clear: both;
float: right; line-height: 1em; display: none;"> <small><a
href="/w/index.php?title=Template:Editnotices/Page/One_%28David_Karp_novel%29&amp;action=edit&amp;redlink=1"
class="new" title="Template:Editnotices/Page/One (David Karp novel) (page does
not exist)">Page notice</a>
