Guys, thanks for fixing this. I knew it was a train wreck when I first put it up, but I thought something bad was better than nothing. :-)

Template inside Infobox personal template

Hi Brent,

Nice work on the template. It has some problems when it is inside the infobox_personal template (see User:Kruhly). It gets worse if it is the first box after the parameter Box=

I have come up with a fix that is not very satisfying. The User Researcher template must be first in the list of boxes and it must be on the same line as Box= . If there is a carriage return after Box= there are problems. Putting a non-breaking space after Box= will work if the template follows a carriage return. This could be a headache for novice users.

Rob, it's probably something with the table syntax getting confused with the template syntax, eh?

It think the parsing of templates inside templates is pretty complex especially if they are both tables. It looks like wrapping the table in a div works for the problem cases mentioned above and it solves the problems we have been having since the upgrade. Not sure what other problems it will cause in the future ...
