Naviduct[edit]

I've added some more information to the Naviduct article, I hope you enjoy reading it. I tried to stick to English language sources on the article before it went through the Did You Know ... ? process as it can get bogged down if you make references to other language documents. Hence, I didn't pick up on specific future projects, just chatter on blogs, and they aren't WP:RS. I haven't managed to find an online source for the Afsluitdijk naviduct proposal in English, but the Dutch source is definitely RS as its an official government statement. You might be able to use G***le Translate on the text if your Dutch isn't good. Wikiwayman (talk) 11:30, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor issue[edit]

Hi Joe,

I see that you ran across a problem with VisualEditor and non-breaking spaces the other day. Could you please tell me what web browser and operating system you're using? I'm trying to sort out this rare problem, and it would be really helpful to me to have this information. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:11, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

I was using Google Chrome 31 on Windows 7.
I noticed that the nbsp was embedded in a ref tag's name attribute, though, which seems kinda wonky and nonstandard. I wonder if automated edits are creating those ref tags, and the VisualEditor parser is choking on those. Joe SchmedleyT* 20:44, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
That sounds plausible to me.
Thanks for your reply. It's really helpful to narrow things down. So far, everyone I've asked says that they encountered this problem on Chrome and either Windows 7 or Windows 8. But Chrome is the most popular browser for editors, so it might be a coincidence. Thanks again. I really do appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:59, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
