Reference syntax help neededEdit

As you can see, I'm getting errors with the named reference "ws"; after reading Help:List-defined references, I'm still not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any experts about? -- Beland (talk) 06:02, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Checking: weird. When I copy full template code, with the /doc, in my User:DePiep/sandbox2 (Userspace), the red texts do not show. The refs show orderly. (However, that clean show does not look like 'as intended', we'd expect reference "a." and "b." only right).
Could it be that, when we change that presentation into a more 'intended' one, the red error might be gone too? (btw, I'm going offline and one can edit as preferred, don't wait for me). -DePiep (talk) 10:13, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Huon managed to at least fix the error. He wrote the following on my personal talk page. -- Beland (talk) 18:20, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

I have no idea why, but changing the order of the references within the {{reflist}} template helped. Personally I'd say the better solution would be to take apart the group of list-defined nested references and instead use less interlaced components. Huon (talk) 17:31, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion of coloring the whitespace demosEdit

  • I feel that the "within ][" column doesn't help us much enough to see the actual width of a whitespace character. How about giving all demos "background-color" attribute? something like this:
Unicode character property "WSpace=Y"
Code point  Name  Decimal  within "]["   Wrap-
 in IDN  Script   Block  General
U+00A0 no-break space 160 ] [ No No Common Latin-1


Non-breaking space: identical to....
U+1680 ogham space mark 5760 ][ Yes Yes Ogham Ogham Separator,
Used for interword separation in....
here's the code: <span style="color:navy;background-color:yellow"><span style="background-color:blue"><nowiki>]</nowiki></span>anyspace<span style="color:navy;background-color:blue"><nowiki>[</nowiki></span></span>
We can give them a new column if we need to keep the colorless demos. Wbxshiori (talk) 12:42, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
