           Summary: DISPLAYTITLE custom formatting break after an open
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified

{{DISPLAYTITLE:''Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)''}} will print Sweet Dreams in
italic, then from the open parenthesis, will ignore any styling markup.

This isn't consistent, as Lua allows to pass a string with parenthesis to the
DISPLAYTITLE parser function:

[ History ]

In 2006, in bug 8394, Brion Vibber, states: “The display title should indeed
not contain any links or formatting codes.”

This behavior is reported to have been introduced in MediaWiki 1.9 according
the same bug.

This doesn't match the last 8 years practice of our main users, Wikipedia
projects, as italic titles are now widely use on Wikipedia projects for
entertainment and artistic works' titles.
