Hi There

I noticed that some form elements do not produce valid html. Will that be fixed in the next versions or should I list this as a request? (i like all my code to be super valid... ;-))

hi nicolaas,

we're aware of this problem. its a bit tricky because we have to respect downwards compatibility with css-styling in the CMS and custom styling etc.
(e.g. <span class="middleColumn"> should be <div class="middleColumn"> for proper HTML-nesting).

we'd love to see some patches (if you're keen), optimally well cross-browser tested in the cms, and with annotations on what developers need to look out for when upgrading:

I've came across this too.

I just threw out that span-middleColumn thing... so far nothing doesn't seem to be broken yet. :-)

But now each time I upgrade I will have to adapt this manually.
