As long as you don't change:
* Any of the FORM attributes
* The name and value attributes of the INPUT tags

Nothing you do with adding a LABEL should affect the Atomz 
functionality.  You can also reference the search box on my (sigh, defunct) 
Star Trek fan site as an example; it's an Atomz 
search.  (http://www.data1701d.com/)
