This wish is open

Description

The Wikidot page language uses whitespace to change semantic behavior in some cases. The Wikidot page language would be easier to understand and less confusing for non-experts if the semantics of whitespace were as easy and unsurprising as possible, because it is difficult to see whitespace and an author of a page may not know the details of the semantics of whitespace in specialized cases.

Example(s):

  1. Template pages have different semantics depending on a trailing space after a "====" separator. See the "Escaping the ==== tag" section described on the Template documentation page.
