When hovering over the tag you can see that the excerpt is enclosed by paragraph tags (just hover over the tags on this question as a test).

Which kind of makes sense as if you look at the tag info you can see it:

However, looking at the tag excerpt history, it's not there:

So where has the <p>...</p> come from all of a sudden?

Note: this affects all tags in several sites, e.g. here on MSE and on Stack Overflow.

  • @ShadowWizard I'm not sure it does affect all tags across all sites. SF&F and CR for instance seem to be fine (their main and meta)... Nov 9 '16 at 13:53
  • Weird. Well, edited, just assumed that if it's both here and on SO, it affects all sites Nov 9 '16 at 13:55
  • something went wrong while rebaking posts, no need to fix manually, will rebake asap

There was a bug in the post rebaking code, it didn't exclude tag wiki excerpts from the markdown processing pipeline.

MSE and MSO and SO have already been fixed.
