The <properties> lists on each of the pages for world objects (e.g. box) do not seem to be rendering in the generated wiki markup. I'm guessing this is intended to be a custom tag handled through a MediaWiki extension, but it seems like these could just be replaced with simple formatted item lists if maintaining the extension is an issue.

I've gone ahead and replaced all the <properties> tags with definition lists (formatted like ";term: definition" in wiki markup). There were one or two pages formatted visibly with lists, but they used bulletted lists and explicit bolding. They looked okay, but I've replaced them too for consistency. I suggest if it is desirable to customize the formatting a bit (such as putting the term and definition on the same line) it should be done through wiki CSS customization of definition lists rather than by editing each page. --Prestidigitator 03:45, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
