A co-worker tried
%EDITTABLE{format="| label,"25%" | select,1,include,exclude | label,20 |"}%
-- TWiki:Main/VickiBrown - 11 Jun 2009

Items in column 2 were treated as labels.

I'm not arguing the incorrect syntax of label,"25%" but it violates the Principle of Least Surprise for this to get so confused as to run over the select and demolish it. :-)

Since label expects a size of 0 after the , I suggest treating anything after the , as a 0 (and printing n appropriate message to the log).

Summary Bad syntax in label format confuses EDITTABLE; overrides next format field.
