I have seen this many times including a site we tested this weekend. In my
opinion it is totally unnecessary and just adds visual and audio clutter.
There may occasionally be an appropriate use for this markup but 99% of the
time it's wrong.

Subject: [WebAIM] Ordered Lists and Forms

I just came across some HTML this morning that had FORM FIELDS inside of an
Ordered List.

i.e.
<form action="" method="post">
<ol>
<li class="first">
<label for="firstName">First Name</label> <input id="firstName" type="text"
class="text first required" />
</li>

I have never seen this done and I wanted to see if anyone understood the
methodology or if it served a true purpose towards Accessibility?
