Zend_View_Helper_FormErrors, when invoked by Zend_Form_Decorator_Errors, does not provide a way for you to customize the HTML tags used. Any customizations require set*() calls, which Zend_Form_Decorator_Errors does not perform. There is no way to set the HTML variables using the $options array.

I am attaching a patch that fixes this, by passing elementStart, elementEnd, and elementSeparator options on to the corresponding set*() calls. With these changes, one can customize the HTML tags by setting the appropriate options from within Zend_Form_Decorator_Errors.

Currently you need to call in the view php like the following.

<pre class="highlight">
$formErrors = $this->getHelper('formErrors');
/* @var $formErrors Zend_View_Helper_FormErrors */



Or any better way?
