Summary: :<math> tag works incorrectly with "leave as tex"
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.15.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page rendering

When using <math> tags it is common to precede with a colon to indent. E.g:

+ y

This code breaks with the "leave as tex" option under preferences.  The y ends
up on a different line, and a <pre> section is added to the document with just
a dollar sign in it.

If we view source we can see what's happening.  The colon indents using <dl>
tags.  In "leave as tex" mode we get something like:

<dl><dd>$ x^2
<p>+ y

when what we want is:

<dl><dd>$ x^2 + y$

The problem appears to be the order in which tags are added.  

I have the same trouble using the jsMath plugin -- works fine except when
there's a colon before multiline math.
