The Recent Comments Widget in the sidebar was one of the most requested widgets by WordPress.com users. It provides list of the most recent comments on posts in the blog.
However, it breaks XHTML validity. I used the W3C validation service to test mine, here is a screenshot of the error:
The error is because the
style element is included in the sidebar widget. If the Recent Comments widget is removed, the page successfully validates.
I got an immediate reply for my feedback regarding this from Andy Skelton that this will be fixed in an update soon.
