XML ID's stop the form from validating

First off, excellent plugin. I came across it not a week ago and have been playing with it since and have already put it in a couple of designs.

 Second, I'm a big web standards advocate and what gets me about the form is the XML ID's placed on 4 of the input in _working _failure _codeerr _popup on lines 1529-1532.

 What stops the form from validating is the use of underscores '_' at the start of an ID. I have tested the effects of removing the underscores from the beginning of the IDs but it disables the ajaxy form refresh function.


I hope there is an easy fix which you can apply, or let us know in the forum so we can patch it ourselves.


Many thanks,

Dave Bowker

When you say 'stops it from validating' you're referring to Strict? Because W3C does validate the code nicely for Transitional.

Anyway, I agree leading _ will be fixed in v5.0 (to be released soon, real soon). 

EDIT: v5.0 should end up being fully XHTML strict compliant
