Drew, like you said itâ€™s not about changing the appearance of the form elements per se (for example, changing the style of a submit button so that it removes the bevels, the hover appearance etc, making it look less â€˜buttonyâ€™). Itâ€™s more about making some kind of visual link between the two fields to make it clear that the text is ralted to a certain input and â€œhey look, itâ€™s even clickable, see?â€. That was the intention â€“ to draw attention to the fact that if the form has a label, the text is clickable, not just the control itself.
However, I knew that this would have its detractors, just as people have issues with text resize widgets on a web page when it should really be the user agent itself that enables the user to do this.
