Create a TWiki table, add | for vertical bar into a cell. If you edit the page again with WYSIWYG, the HTML entity gets resolved to an actual vertical bar, which is interpreted by TWiki as a table cell separator.

Just checked. This bug is not fixed with the latest TinyMCE-3.5.8. Likely a transformation issue of WysiwygPlugin.

Workaround: Use %VBAR% variable.
