I know, that was my stupidity. I tried to fix it
later, but that
broke styles/scripts and got reverted. :( I still hope to restore it
to a more sensible state at some point, maybe in a one-time general
document structure cleanup (making TOCs non-tables, changing the
<h5>/<h6> sidebar headers so headings nest properly, . . .).
I'd be pleased to help out with clean-up of output code.
been playing with that regarding to what's been said above and got to
some proposal how to deal with editlinks. The playground is on
requires some changes in MediaWiki code which
renders the page (check the
Hmm . . . I don't know. It uses up vertical space, which isn't great.
Also, I would put the edit link under the section title, not above
it. It does have the advantage that it's pretty clearly related to
the section, not just the section title, but overall I'm not sure I
like it. I do agree with most of the rest of your points, except that
I don't see anything aesthetically displeasing with the German
positioning of the links. They could be made a bit smaller, perhaps,
and some kind of top-section edit link would be good. The latter
would be easily doable in the German style, with just [edit top] after
the page name . . . but that might be too prominent and confusing to
new users, plus we don't have the automatic /* summaries */, so I
don't know if it would be useful overall. So overall I'd be
conservative and just go with what the Germans have.
It doesn't use that much of space which would be annoying or even critical. But I
agree, that's subjective.
I also played with editlink underneath the header, but:
1. it either fills the gap in between the header and paragraph -> the page isn't
that "fluffy" as it used to be (that's what I, and I guess many other,
wouldn't like) or
2. it takes the vertical space (that's what you just mentioned you don't see
What I forgot to add to advantages of my solution was that selecting of text of section
for copying of course does not select the  text since it is placed before such
section and its header.
