Something WF2 might be a good place to clarify..
It is AFAIK not covered by any spec whether clicking a LABEL should
trigger an onClick event on the associated control. Implementations
have been inconsistent. IMO the most useful implementation is that
clicking a label should trigger onClick for form controls - at least
for those that change state (such as a checkbox).
One (not purpose-written) TC:
Older versions of Opera would not enable the "SELECT multiple" if one
clicked the text next to the first checkbox instead of the checkbox
(If anyone feels tempted to actually use that page for anything note
that it doesn't handle HTTP/1.1 logs well, only 1.0.)
