regardless it seems of the code, I just hear edit when tabbing using jfw
3.7 and ie 5.5.

if you have some code to test, I'll be happy to take a look.

  Hello:
       I agree with David in that it is still an issue.  The consequence
is
  that I will hear only "Edit" but will not know what type of
information is requested.

  it is still an issue although many have solved it.  even though you
have
  to rub the text out, it is best to have something telling you where to
  write because some renderings still confuse labels with edit boxes.

  the rationale for this one was that there were assistive technology
and
  browser combinations that would skip over empty form controls. I am
not
  certain, but I believe that this is no longer an issue. I will ask the
  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines group to address this question as
  fast as possible.
