Reference validation has holes in it

Allowing styling inside of references is a bad idea; they can be styled if you include the square brackets all in the same style.  However since people can do it they will.   Perhaps it is a known bug that it does not fail gracefully.

References for items abcd and NO-LABEL are NOT validated for numerics for the item number part.

I combined 1057 and this one into one bug & changed the title and tags to reflect same.

the is that wiki references are allowed in the add titel box and add about title box without validation.
