Extra brackets for footnotes (but this time in post)
I noticed that this answer has two pairs of brackets:
However, in the preview, it shows as only a single pair of brackets,
Also here is an example in this post.
Weirdly it seems to only affect some posts, for instance https://meta.codidact.com/questions/278644 is affected but not https://meta.codidact.com/questions/277504.
Some footnote text ↩︎
This should be fixed now, but it's complicated and I'm just going to quote a bit from the pull request:
Note: This will result in footnotes that currently only have one pair of brackets having none. Unfortunately, this is an inconsistency in the HTML itself which cannot be corrected except by editing. I believe that this is because in the past, we had inconsistency in whether the server-side or client-side code would render post's to markdown, as has been noted before. Since we have moved to client-side rendering, inconsistencies should no longer be an issue going forward.
