Hi Brenson: 

<_span_> works great, unfortunately, plese correct me if I am wrong,
semantics of this tag have been diminished ( see _schema.org_ for
interaction microdata literature, and doubts). 

labeling, even being a common practice used by developers targeting some
modern devices in opur days,  it is not 'semantic' as you well mention,
and should be always nested as a child of the_ form_ tag. 

To resolve your needs,  I,a s mentioned,  agreed _strong _will acomplish
