SelectDateWidget in required field renders an invalid HTML. According to standard every select with required attribute must have a placeholder option, i.e. first option must have an empty string as a value. That is not a case of SelectDateWidget.


from django import forms
class FooForm(forms.Form):
    a_date = forms.DateField(widget=forms.SelectDateWidget)
form = FooForm()
str(form) # >>> ...<select name="a_date_month" required id="id_a_date_month"><option value="1">January</option>...
