Here are the extensions that affect content rendering currently in use:
A few wikis also have:

Math and SVG rendering are also in use on Wikipedia, so should be enabled if
taking our current content straight.
$wgLegalTitleChars should have "+" appended to it for compatibility. This will
most likely be added to the default in the next revision, unless I forget about

I downloaded 1.6.8 last night and the SVG rendering was still broken. I
can hack the script and get it working, but I would rather wait for
you to post a 1.6.9 release. Also, the HTML tidy suggestion is not an
option -- we should fix our bugs rather than use an external program
to cleanup the mess left by the bugs :-).
I got 1.7 installed, however, the page rendering is still trashed.
Would you like an account on wikigadugi.org
to poke around in my database
and MediaWiki setup to see if there's a problem there or for some
insights? I am open to giving you one to help me determine how best to
solve the issues of "as is" XMl dumps so other folks supporting
Wikimedia won't encounter this problem again.
