    Hi, I want to style the number (post count) and the post title on the widget separately but I can't separate it.

    any idea how.

    These require the plugin to set an HTML span element with a class attribute for those both. Then they can be styled in CSS. It's possible for the plugin author or someone else to make this adjustment for the code and also add a field for the user to directly insert the desired CSS attributes.

    https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-pagenavi-style/ is an excellent example of allowing easy styling for users. Possibly some of the code can be reused.

    I haven't provided a separate span tag because of it not being XHTML compliant.

    I'll check out the wp-pagenavi-style plugin to see what can be done

    XHTML disallows having span inside li? Didn't find any mention of this on http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_li.asp or http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_span.asp. Then again http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_div.asp mentions nothign of the sort either, though I've seen some widget's changelogs mention "getting rid of the divs as they're not valid inside the widget area".

    Does anyone have a link explaining what's not valid XHTML in the widget area and why?

    I realised I already have span being implemented in the plugin, so it shouldn't be a problem adding in an additional span!

    I think it is a problem with XHTML Strict. It has been a while before I dusted those XHTML books!
