FS#1514 FIXME and DELETEME should output Text and not GIFs
Patterns like FIXME and DELETEME results in GIFs. This is not good as you cannot search the Pattern on a wiki page (with Firefox Search). When you print the page as a PDF, you cannot search these patterns too. This is a big disadvantage for large wiki pages. You have to check all the pages for the pattern and this costs a lot of time.
Therefore the patterns should output CSS styled texted which can be searched.
The global search is working and find these patterns successfully.
As this is completely different from smileys behaviour, I'd rather suggest removing FIXME and DELETEME altogether from smileys.conf and putting them in entities.conf, substituting it with something like <span class="fixme">FIXME</span> instead.
If that should be done in the core remains to be decided, especially as this can all be done with existing functionalities that were intended to be used that way ...
