I believe X-Smiles does this with caption-side CSS property.

Subject: checkbox labels


Hi,

I noticed that every xforms processor that I tried put the labels for 
boolean inputs (usually rendered as checkboxes) to the left of the 
checkbox even though the overwhelming preference for html forms is to 
have the label on the right of a checkbox.  Do any xforms processors 
allow their authors to position a boolean input's label to the right of 
the control?  Perhaps using a CSS style?

I guess the better question might be, does any processor allow the form 
author to determine the label position (either left or right of the 
underlying control) of any xforms control?  And if so, how?

Thanks,
--Aaron
