[resolved] Blogroll (links) Widget bombs out on http://validator.w3.org/ (4 posts)

    For the fun of it, I thought I would try to validate my website with http://validator.w3.org/

    I cleaned up a number of errors, but was a bit surprised to find some errors surrounding the widget which generates my blogroll links. Has anyone ever seen these before and have you fixed it? As it has to do with a built in widget rather than any of my customisation, I am not even sure where to start to look to fix this.

    TIA.

    An "id" is a unique identifier. Each time this attribute is used in a document it must have a different value. If you are using this attribute as a hook for style sheets it may be more appropriate to use classes (which group elements) than id (which are used to identify exactly one element).

    thats been mentioned before, yes. you might want to search around for some other posts - one, or some of them might address it.

    Found it! http://wordpress.org/support/topic/118321?replies=12 It looks like it won't be resolved until version 2.4... which means that we're looking until '08 for a fix. :-(
