Small Design fix – Widget compatible with all themes now=1.0.4=
Small fix of html entities and added all languages as default search for twitter

before widget text
– after widget text
– before title text
– after title text
– use image option
– use link option (converts text start with ‘http://’ and twitter macros (‘@’ and ‘#’) into clickable links)

+ The generated code is valid, so the SGML validator won’t alert for invalid HTML elements in JS code.
+ List item CSS classes (odd, even) intead of inline style
+ some bug fixes caused HTML validation errors

Curtesy of Gixx
fixed the reported regexp bug, and also made some code-beautification:

– RegExp fix to not include invalid characters into twitter macro links
– some more validation fixes
– a bit of code optimalization
– each part of the twitter now has its own SPAN tag, to make it easier for styling (remember: #twitter_div span{display:block;} may come in handy)

Warning: existing layout desing may break upon updating!
The new structure is the following (only when use the ‘Search’ option):

[div id=”twitter_div”]
[li class=”odd”]
[span class=”icon”][img tag][/span]
[span class=”user”][a tag, link to twitter][/span]
[span class=”date”]date[/span]
[span class=”tweet”]tweet[/span]
[li class=”even”]
