Want to record some of the subtle (?) behaviors of TWiki for whatever reason (so we fix some, duplicate some in any rewrite of TWiki, ...)

I thought I had a page started with things like the behavior of the summary (it often (always?) shows raw text instead of TWiki rendered text), but I can't find that page today.

This page needs a rename.

Summary Shows Raw Text

<this is covered on another page, maybe on Codev or Support (or TWiki) instead of Wikilearn>

Save on Inadvertent Disconnect

Sometimes I go through the preview cycle, then hit save, and leave the page without waiting to see the saved page. I come back the next day (or whatever) to find that my save apparently failed (I still see the preview page in my browser). Quite often, when I then check the actual page, I find that my changes were saved, but I didn't get the notification (i.e., the view of the saved page).

Why do I record this here? Don't know — just an observation. I guess it's a nice behavior that I wouldn't want to change. I mean, if the link between me (as a TWiki client) and the TWiki server has to fail, why not let it fail in this "user friendly" fashion when possible?) (I recognize we can't enforce this behavior, on the other hand, I see no reason to in any sense synchronize the client and server so that, if I'm not notified, of the save it doesn't happen.)
