I've just noticed that on English Wikipedia
links such as [[Pink
no longer include the 's as part of the resulting link. Is this a parser
bug, or a deliberate change in the way links are being parsed? I don't
recall seeing an announcement about it.
Since we're debating the merits of the change, IMHO the 's should not
be linked. Can't think of any compelling reasons why, but
aesthetically it seems better to me.
I noticed the problem here:
The second paragraph has about 6 instances of this in quick succession, and
in my opinion it makes the paragraph needlessly difficult to read. (btw, it
also has instance of s', as in Sex Pistols', and this looks fine, so I don't
think this case needs to be handled in the same way).
I just tested that paragraph in 1.6.10, and it is rendered the same, so this
doesn't appear to be a regression (unless the change happened prior to that,
or it has changed twice since then) so it seems I must have just been
mis-remembering it. However I personally think it would be improvement.
