    If it is, it has the best formatted mark-up inserted into the source that I've ever seen.
    HTML Code:
    			<div class="widget_branding">
    			    <a href="http://trutv.com/" target="partners">

    			</div>
    		    
    		
    	        <div class="widget_children">

    The widget is between these 2 in the mark-up but isn't showing. It might be a "member only" thing that's poorly designed I guess.
    In any case, I personally would ~not~ enter anything nto the form.

    You can trigger that behavior pretty easily if you aren't careful with file permissions -- that will happen by default in IIS if the web reader doesn't have access to the underlying file for example.
