 For `interleave_changed_lines()` in `WP_Text_Diff_Renderer_Table`, the
 return value is documented rather sparsely and poorly in the description
 and not documented in `@return` except as being an array. (In fact, it is
 slightly better documented in a comment preceding its sole invocation, in

 This existing documentation utilizes a glob-style notation that fails to
 accurately indicate the exact return value array elements to be expected.
 Additionally, this unnecessary notation gets misinterpreted as Markdown by
 WP-Parser, resulting in a mangled description for the function in
 developer.wordpress.org (appearing as partially italicized text and a
 stray text in a code block).
