It still generates divs at places in the html code where only spans are allowed, e.g. inside a h2. That's invalid html not displayed correctly in some browers.

There's an explicit mode parameter that configures which kind of elements are to be generated, spans or divs. Nevertheless the plugin generates html wrapper code using divs. This should be spans instead as they are allowed more widely than divs.


%TWISTY{prefix="<h2>" suffix="</h2>" mode="div"}%
   * some
   * list

This will generate something like this

<h2>...<div>  <a> hide/show </a> </div> </h2>

But making the button depend on the mode parameter would also be wrong:

%TWISTY{prefix="<h2>" suffix="</h2>" mode="span"}%
   * some
   * list

<h2>...<span>  <a> hide/show </a></span>  </h2>
... because an UL is forbidden inside a SPAN in the toggled area.

It seems as though the functions _wrapIn... should be sensitive to the mode / buttonmode settings...

The solution is to put the prefix and suffix inside the wrapper div. That way the header won't appear when no javascript is available, and the page will validate.
