Re: Wikisource:Scriptorium#Links_in_tables_not_working_for_anyone_else.3FEdit

Hi &. Apologies I broke {{TOC link}} briefly. Careful testing all shot to hell by clumsy enabling... My change is back in - this time in the right place, so please let me know if anything is still misbehaving. Apologiesmany. Regards, MODCHK (talk) 12:19, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Template double singleEdit

We already have {{"}} and {{'}}. --EncycloPetey (talk) 23:41, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

I noticed those, but does either of them add the slight padding between the " and the ' ? This came up for me on Page:United States v. Windsor.pdf/11, where there is at one point a quote-within-a-quote-within-a-quote. Simply writing 'actual or imminent, not "conjectural or hypothetical."' might confuse readers as to precisely which quotations are ending, and putting a space between the two seemed like it would be less true to the original text, as well as slightly more disruptive to reading flow than the fraction-of-a-space that {{" '}} provides. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 23:48, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
OK, I misread and misunderstood what the template was about; the WP name is less visually ambiguous. It looked like you were separating two single quotes from another single quote, which is a situation that occurs here and has ambiguous wiki-meaning. Clear documentation would help with your newly added template. Also, what is the purpose of the trailing <noinclude> you put into the template? --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:00, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Ah. My bad. Should have included documentation; I'll fix that shortly. If you think it would make more sense to give the template a less ambiguous title, as has been done on WP, there's no objection on my part. And the noinclude was just an instance of rules 22 and 23 of the Internet. ;) — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 00:04, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
