    The Cynthia validator is saying there's a failure on my page but I simply can't see it.

    I'm validating www.vagusnet.com/ptest/index.php and it's saying:
    Rule: 1.1.2 - All INPUT elements are required to contain the alt attribute or use a LABEL.
    Failure - INPUT Element, of Type TEXT, found at Line: 17, Column: 79
    However the only code on that line is:
    Code:
    	<div><label for="thename">Please select a name to be referred to by: </label><input type="text" name="uname" />
    Any clues as to why it seems to believe there is no label there?

    Oh and also, what are you supposed to do with a hidden input? It'd seem very stupid to put a label for a hidden input because as far as I can see it'd do exactly the opposite of what these guideline are intended for and simply confuse users by giving a label for an apparently non-existent form element.
    I'm thuper, thanks for asking.

    Nothing that sticks out maybe it's asking for an alt for the input element or place holder.

    Alternatively it's referring to: <input type="text" name="uname" /> and the fact it has no label, which would make the most sense.

    Oh yeah. I forgot to give the input the id of "thename" too.
    D'oh!!

    That was driving me mad.

    Any ideas on the labels for hidden input though? It says labels for all input tags, but like I said, I think giving labels for hidden inputs would cause more problems than it would solve (if there would be any to solve at all).
