Permission error while translating [nds-nl]

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

You do not have permission to edit this page because it contains raw HTML which can be modified to affect all visitors.

Permissions for editing of sitewide CSS/JS/JSON files were recently separated from the editinterface right. If you do not understand why you are getting this error, see mw:Special:MyLanguage/MediaWiki_1.32/interface-admin.

Why do I get this message, I'm one of the few (if not the only Dutch Low Saxon translator here) and can't even update my own translations, what do I need to do to be able to do that?

A few legacy messages contain some dangerous HTML that can only be edited by admins.

This is the case when there are `href=""` attributes (which could be used to insert external links to rogue sites) or `<a>`anchor tags (forbidden in MediaWiki), or javascript snippets.

Specify the translation you need in this support page: the link to the message you can't edit yourself, and the desired translated text.
