    Newest version of RadWindowManager is not W3C valid. Even on your site:

    Errors found while checking this document as XHTML 1.1!

    Line 156, Column 267: document type does not allow element "style" here.
    …"2006-12-24" /><style type='text/css'>/*Telerik RadCalendar Office2007 skin*/

    The element named above was found in a context where it is not allowed. This could mean that you have incorrectly nested elements -- such as a "style" element in the "body" section instead of inside "head" -- or two elements that overlap (which is not allowed).

    One common cause for this error is the use of XHTML syntax in HTML documents. Due to HTML's rules of implicitly closed elements, this error can create cascading effects. For instance, using XHTML's "self-closing" tags for "meta" and "link" in the "head" section of a HTML document may cause the parser to infer the end of the "head" section and the beginning of the "body" section (where "link" and "meta" are not allowed; hence the reported error).


    And so on...

    There is a minor issue in RadWindowManager, which does not make it XHTML compliant. We have already added this task to our to-do list and it will be fixed for our next release. If your web page output must be XHTML compliant, we suggest using RadWindow objects without a window manager.

    As for RadCalendar - the markup validation issue is caused by a bug, which slipped into Q3 2008 SP1. We have already fixed it and changes will take effect in Q3 2008 SP2. Please accept our apologies for this problem.

    I am attaching a hotfix of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, which was built right after the SP1 release. It has the RadCalendar problem resolved.

    In case someone needs a dev version of this hotfix, please contact Telerik support via a ticket and we will send it to you.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
