    Hi I have a number of templates on my website and have been asked to run the site through the W3c validator. I am still using XHTML 1.0 Transitional but the validator is throwing up a number of errors. The notable ones are "document type does not allow element "div" here" and "ID "myID" already defined". I know that the page works fine with these inside my template and I don't much mind that they are there but from a client point of view I cannot get rid of the errors from the page.

    Has anyone come up with a way to escape the template scripts from the page so they don't appear in validation while still allowing the template to work correctly?

    An example of one of my templates:
    <script type="text/x-kendo-template" id="clickTemplate">
        <div class="resultLine" onclick="window.location = '${ data.oDataSourceURL }'">
            <a href="${ data.oDataSourceURL }">${data.oDataProductDesc}</a>
        </div>
    </script>
    Thanks in advance

    Jamie
