By the way:

There is no label element in XHTML 2.0,

To be precise there is <label> but its meaning is different:
"The label element is used to define a label for a list. The contents of the 
label element represent the title of a list (or sublist)."

Subject: Styling by attribute-based association?

|   How does one style an element based on whether it has an association
| to another element via an attribute? Specifically, how do I style a
| <label> with a |for| attribute?
|   Situations where this would be useful:
| 1) You want the label to have a dashed border when the associated
| control is selected.
| 2) You want non-associated labels do have a different style from
| associated labels, even in cases where a <label> has an incorrect |for|
| attribute value.
| 3) You want all labels for a specific control or class of controls to be
| styled in a specific way.
|   Is a new selector required in this case? For that matter, is a new
| selector needed for parent-child <label> associations? This affects both
| existing HTML markup and new markup proposals.
