Re: Accessibility of complex HTML forms

Hi Peter

I'm trying to use your usableform.js script using DIV rather than TR.
Unfortunately though it isn't working.

Can you give me a hint as to what I could try.

The code where I'm trying to do this is as below:

<div id="waitingRoom"></div>

<div class="row">
<label for="OtherLanguageForm">
<span class="label">Is this form to be set in a language other than
<select id="OtherLanguageForm" name="OtherLanguageForm">
<option value="No" selected>No</option>
<option value="Yes" show="otherlanguage">Yes</option>

<div class="row" relation="otherlanguage">
<label for="BilingualForm">
<span class="dependentlabel">If other language, is this form
<select id="BilingualForm" name="BilingualForm">
<option value="No" selected>No</option>
<option value="Yes">Yes</option>
