            Bug ID: 60059
           Summary: A Left-to-right mark at the bottom of category name
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Categories

When an user is copying a name of a subcategory from the content of a category
page, an unvisible control character (probably a char code 8206, a
Left-to-right mark) from the bottom of the category name is often
unintentionally copied to the target page and blocks some scripts (e.g.
Cat-a-lot is not able to remove such category tag). See
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Bots/Work_requests/Archive_9#Unvisible_controll_characters_in_category_tags
for some discussions about this problem.  

Could it be possible to display the content of the category without that
unvisible control character? 

Could it be possible to prevent saving pages with such unwanted control
characters in category tags? 

Related: Bug 55391 about Cat-a-lot (closed as invalid).
