Description

The second example code in "Using forms in views and templates", subsection "Complex template output" contains semantic HTML errors. The closing "dd" tags within the "if" blocks should be closing "ul" tags.

<form method="post">
<ul class="myformclass">
    <li>{{ form.sender.label }} {{ form.sender.label }}</li>
    <li class="helptext">{{ form.sender.help_text }}</li>
    {% if form.sender.errors %}<ul class="errorlist">{{ form.sender.errors }}</dd>{% endif %}

    <li>{{ form.subject.label }} {{ form.subject.label }}</li>
    <li class="helptext">{{ form.subject.help_text }}</li>
    {% if form.subject.errors %}<ul class="errorlist">{{ form.subject.errors }}</dd>{% endif %}

    ...
</ul>
</form>

Correct:

...
    {% if form.sender.errors %}<ul class="errorlist">{{ form.sender.errors }}</ul>{% endif %}
...
    {% if form.subject.errors %}<ul class="errorlist">{{ form.subject.errors }}</ul>{% endif %}

(In [5352]) Fixed #4353 -- Fixed a typo in newforms documentation. I can't believe the
documentation editor didn't spot this. Thanks, zendak.
