Having started following the recent thread on form problems it seems to me
that a form design best practice would signicantly help promote and educate
(me for one) accessiblity concerns. 

I noted many good points relating to form design when I followed the thread
and feel this should not be wasted. After forms, forms are fairly
universally used all the time and the discussion applies to any form seeking
to provide help. 

An example form, including all the appropriate labeling of controls
techniques, naming, use of access keys, alt text, layout, explanations I
feel would be a tremendous resource!! Could even provide brief explanations
of why each technique is used (reference to WCAG) as help?!!:-)

Or am I just crap and one already exists in a very obvious place?!!
