From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0) BuildID: 20011080110 When adding <label for="tag">caption</label> to an existing form, the caption does not show. The form uses cols and align right. The example given, removing either the cols or the align right will "fix" the problem. However, this is but one instance in which the label mechanism is broken. I have more complicated forms that break with any significant combination of align and/or cols attributes. Note that removing all cols="2" attributes doesn't solve the problem in the complicated case. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a form with a table a text area and a label 2. Set cols="2" for the table or set align="right" for a column 3. View in browser Actual Results: Labels are not shown when cols="2" is added to the table attributes or when align="right" is set to the td. Remove either of these and the label shows... Expected Results: Labels are shown. <html> <body> <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post"> <table cols="2" > <tr> <td align="right"> <label for="given">First:</label></td> <td> <input type="text" name="given" id="given" /> </td></table></form></body></html>
