Re: Form field with Select options

A possible solution might look something like this:

<div role="group" aria-labelledby="label">
<label id="label" for="select">Name</label>: <select id="select"> <input
aria-labelledby="label">
</div>

However, this is clunky (as is the design pattern). What you really need
usability review. There may be a better solution.
