Description (last modified by greenfeld)

The various Wikipedia activities should show each inline reference number inside of its own pair of square brackets. This is how Wikipedia's main websites seem to show them by default.

Currently the reference numbers run into each other if more than one reference is cited at the end of the same sentence. No spaces or other delimiters are used.

For an example, see the "Astronomy" article in WikipediaEN-31 in OLPC 11.3.1 os32 {"234", "1415", "2122", "2324", "4142", etc.}

Note that while most examples in the Wikipedia activities are a set of sequential numbers, there is no guarantee this will always happen. It is possible to cite the same reference in Wikipedia more than once in an article by giving its reference tag a "name".
