It adds useless lines beetwen the noinclude from the footer and the footer text itself, see http://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Skriptorium#zus.C3.A4tzliche_Leerzeilen_im_Footer with difflinks
My German's a bit rusty, can you provide the steps to reproduce the bug? (exact page to hit, exact things to do while editing, exact browser version used)
If you edit, preview or let you show the changes at any Page: page (on german ws Seite:) it adds every time a linebreak in the footer. The page is with the scheme headertextfooter. The linebreaks from the footer and textbox are stripped away if the extension rebuild the complete page by JS (does not know if it is on oldwikisource or now in the extension itself) but not the linebreak from the footer.
It effects all wikisource which uses Proofread Page, example pages (the also last history diffs):
sorry, it strips the noinclude tags in the scheme: [noinclude]header[/noinclude]text[noinclude]footer[/noinclude]
r99164 should fix this up. ProofreadPage was adding a newline inside the footer on every save, which was only visible on the first edit because on subsequent edits the newline got silently eaten in the textarea and then re-inserted again on save.
Moved the inserted newline from inside the footer's <noinclude> to outside it, so we still make sure there's a newline before the header but it's in a place where extra newlines get trimmed (end of body area) so it won't grow forever.
