Re: Forms: Explicit associations and Empty controls?

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Let's see if I have understood WCAG 1.0 correctly:

Checkpoint 10.2 does not suggest to circumvent explicit associations between labels and form controls.

10.2 suggests a fall back by way of containing the INPUT and the description text within the LABEL element, while still declaring (explicit association) the attributes 'for' (LABEL) and 'id' (e.g. INPUT)

Example:
http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/#forms-specific

In what way would CSS improve/aid(?) explicit associations between labels and form controls?

Could you point to a section in the CSS Specification?

Regards,
Thomas Jedenfelt
