Why I created this page 
I just created this page because I read a few people mentioning the same behavior. I'm sure there is a better way to talk about this problem, but I wanted to post a fix so newbies like me could figure it out.
Possibly, the MediaWiki extensions FAQ##How_do_I_render_wikitext_in_my_extension.3F entry on rendering Wikitext should be changed to discourage people from using global $wgOut to access the parser?
