Summary: Add __NOTIDY__ magic word for template testing and
Component: Page rendering
Tidy is a great piece of software which takes much of the burden of worrying
about correct markup off of the average editor. At the same time, though, there
are areas where Tidy provides broken output, especially when combined with
MediaWiki's parser, which itself outputs invalid HTML in some circumstances
(the proof for this is the requirement for Tidy in the first place - a perfect
parser would be able to turn even the most ugly, broken, scrambled wikimarkup
into 100% valid HTML, and a very good one would be able to cover 99% of common
These problems become most readily obvious in template editing, particularly
when it is used to supplement or fix various built-in features of MediaWiki,
such as cite.php - for an example of this, see
[[User_talk:Gadget850/Reference_templates#Highlight]]. Per Gadget850's comment
there, then, I'd like a __NOTIDY__ magic word implemented which disables the
page output being passed through Tidy prior to delivery to the end user.
