  • Explicitly associate the label with the form control
    • Set each form control with a unique id value
    • Use the <Label for="form_control_id_value" > to explicitly associated the label with the form control.
  • Avoid using images as labels for form controls, if they are used, be sure to use them within the <label> element and include the alt attribute
  • Place a text prompt in the text entry and selection controls
  • Use title attribute to increase functionality by giving additional supplemental information for the form control
