On my recent question Export Javascript source block to script tag in HTML when exporting Org file to HTML the tag '04182016 suddenly and misteriously appeared. I believe it happened automatically (that is, I believe I didn't add it myself --and I am sure I didn't add it intentionally). What triggered it? What does it mean? Why does it look like a date but not today's date?

(By the way, meta forces me to choose for this question between the tags 'discussion, 'feature-request, 'bug, 'support --none seems completely appropriate; I went with 'bug because "I found [...] unexpected behaviour in the system [...]". Feel free to retag it more appropriately.)

  • No idea. Leave the tag on there for a bit in case anyone else knows what happened, and then we should probably just get rid of it. – Dan Nov 4 '16 at 15:13

    Did you attempt to modify the tags in revision 5, which is where the tag is recorded to have been added? Could this have been an accidental paste from a misplaced key press or click? What client (browser or app version, OS) did you use to post this revision? – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 4 '16 at 20:01
  • I think I did not attempt to edit the tags at all, @Gilles. But I may have done so inadvertently. I really don't think I had anything remotely like 04182016 in my clipboard (or kill-ring see below), but I won't swear I didn't. I, um, don't remember how I made that edit, there are four possibilities: Firefox 45.4 on a Red Hat 4.8.5 machine, Microsoft Edge on a Windows 10 machine or the sx.el Emacs client from within Emacs 24.5 (on either of those two computers). – Omar Nov 5 '16 at 1:40

    It doesn't look like there's going to be much more discussion, so I went ahead and deleted the tag. – Dan Nov 15 '16 at 19:17
