AWB Notes

  1. ^ It doesn't cover only some really rare cases
  2. ^ Inserts the section header and the reference tag if there are already other headers
  3. ^ Not always a replacement is possible. Check for instance bugzilla:44820
  4. ^ Use F&R to remove regex \u200E|\u200F|\uFEFF|\u200B|\u2028|\u202A|\u202B|\u202C|\u202D|\u202E|\uFFFC. And replace \u2004|\u2005|\u2006|\u2007|\u2008 with normal space. This won't work if "Skip if no changes" and this is the only change.
  5. ^ It won't fix same category with different keys.
  6. ^ It won't unicodify the page if it contains a math tag
  7. ^ It won't fix unbalanced tags
  8. ^ It fixes [[foo||bar]]>[[foo|bar]], [[foo|bar|]]>[[foo|bar]] and some more
  9. ^ AWB fixes all the magic words
  10. ^ It does not cover some weird non alphabet cases
  11. ^ It won't fix unbalanced tags
  12. ^ It won't fix tags inside blockquote etc.
  13. ^ It won't fix tags inside blockquote etc.
  14. ^ Corrects only cases where the whole title is bold
  15. ^ Does not handle 3 small tags in a row nor double </small></small> in a row.
  16. ^ Many in-use ISBNs have invalid checksums due to publisher errors. See ISBN#Errors_in_usage.
  17. ^ The CHECKWIKI regex is too greedy. %20 should not be replaced inside urls
  18. ^ Autotagging can only tag with {{Empty section}} empty sections with level 2 header
  19. ^ It won't fix double brackets to ftp
  20. ^ It fixes a small number of cases

CheckWiki False positives

  1. ^ {{{|}} is needed in infoboxes as some cannot identify {| as the start of a wikitable.
