HTML <label> tag


<label> - </label>

Definition and Usage

The LABEL element is used to specify labels for controls that do not have implicit labels. The LABEL element associates a label with a form control. By associating labels with form controls, authors give important hints to users of speech browsers while also allowing visual browsers to duplicate common GUI features (e.g., the ability to click on a text label to select a radio button or checkbox).
