    from what I understand, upgrading to css editor, only allows access to css. but can I upload badges (such as facebook, myspace badges) to the sidebar of the theme?

    i am under the impression that I cannot because html code snippet is part of these badges and wordpress.com blogs dont’ allow me to access the core html files?

    You don’t need an upgrade to use badges: you just put them in a text widget.

    You can use html in a text widget. Flash, javascript and iframes get stripped out.

    When you drag the widget into your sidebar, click on the part that looks like a sheet of paper. This will open it up for editing; you’ll see the space where the title goes and the space below as well. You have to use code; there is no Visual Editor option. To save changes, click the X in the corner of the widget, then hit “Update” and all should be well.
