Component: generalwiki
Severity: normalminor

Replying to ThurnerRupert:

is this intended?

Yes, as !<something> is usually used to negate the <something> Wiki markup. In this case !''' is interpreted as "those three single quotes are not a token for bold style".

But yes, it's quite common to end emphasized sentences with a "!", so this was not a particular good choice. An alternative would have been to use the "\" character as a way to escape the Wiki markup, as it's far less common in normal writing than "!". But it's maybe a bit too late for such a change…

So unless someone has a better idea, we should at least document this in WikiFormatting#FontStyles
