This is another case of Too Much Of A Good Thing, and an instance where the WikiMagic gets a bit out of control, ''[[{{Fantasia}} Sorcerer's Apprentice]]''-style. It gets even worse when they leave out the indent markup ([=-->=]), leaving the text normal-sized and indistinguishable from the body. That is usually fixed, though, but people don't always catch it.
