I think it's another case of HTML being escaped when it shouldn't be. If you visit the Meta About page, in the first grey box:

Meta-discussion means <span class="revision-comment"> discussion of the discussion itself instead of the actual topic of the discussion</span>.

I'm guessing that's supposed to be a real HTML span tag with some styles applied to that definition.

  • You seem to be one of the few people today who has read the Meta About page before asking a question. Congratulations.

    @ShaWizDowArd - Yeah. It's Wikipedia. Nothing to do with me. Nothing at all.

Good spot.

Missed this bit during localization. Forgot to tell the localization code to not encode those.
