Thanks for the review, David.
I agree with David's recommendations, but propose the following changes:
- replace each instance of the phrase "must have" with "has"
- replace each instance of "must not" with "does not"

Subject: Tests 186, 187, 188, 189, 

I had an action item to review HTML tests 186-189. 


*	LABEL must not
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test186.html> contain INPUT. 

*	INPUT element must
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test187.html> have only one
associated LABEL. 

*	LABEL must contain
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test188.html> text. 

*	LABEL must  <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/tests/test189.html>
describe its associated control. 


I've reviewed the files, checked them through AT, and consulted other
opinions of professionals in the field.


Here are my recommendations:


Accept test 186    


An interesting thing is that in the passing test file, once you enter
forms mode in JAWS, you must enter something into the field in order to
back out of the page.  You can't back out of the page (using the back
button) if you enter and exit forms mode without putting something in
the field. Because it backs into the form field and then cannot back out
of it. This I think is a bug in JAWS.


Accept test 187



Accept test 188


Accept Test 189
