the ( and ) - rather obvious bug if you follow the instructions frown

rather scary that the following TML can screw up preview so completely

---+ Title


---++ Heading

   * Problem: (SandBox24)

-- TWiki:Main/SvenDowideit - 27 Apr 2007

guess that someone needs to make a good and nontrivial set of unit tests for TOC - with all sorts of unexpectes corner cases

does anyone know a professional tester?

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 27 Apr 2007

If I may... I've done a bit of testing and found some more info...

Any time a WikiWord (or auto-linked topic title, regardless of WikiWordness) is prefixed with a (, the TOC breaks during Preview.

See examples on TWiki:Sandbox.SandBox24

--TWiki:Main.DustinGooding - 23 May 2007

Well, it works fine here ... leading me to think that this problem exists on the current release only.

(WikiWord) - breaks
(WikiWord ) - breaks
( WikiWord) - works
( WikiWord ) - works
