IF someone changes the template file PreviewContent.jsp, and reformats the <wiki:Translate> tags, translation will fail for the first line if the production rule it expects to have applied reuqires that the character start at the beginning of a line.

Example:

    <wiki:Translate>
        <%=pageContext.getAttribute("usertext",PageContext.REQUEST_SCOPE)%>
    </wiki:Translate>

IF the page looks like:

!!! Big heading
!! Little heading

Then translator will actually see:


        !!! Big heading
!! Little heading

I would argue that translate should trim whitespace and blank lines until the first non-whitespace character is encountered. I doubt that anyone will actually lose any whitespace they wanted to keep in this case.

Cheers,

Mike


Fixed in 2.2.19.
