Hi all,

I'm working on an HTML form which has an area where date input is
required in the format MM YY (in two separate input fields.)

I am not sure what the best way to do the label HTML for these, and have
got an example page with two options up at


I'm not interested in the visual presentation of this for the moment,
but keeping the tab order, HTML order and labels correct.

In the first example, it gives the format as the <label> text, eg 

The second example has more info included in the label text, but does
not tell you what the format should be, eg <label>From Month</label>

Any comments on these? Or any good examples I could look at of good
screen reader friendly forms with this sort of content that I could look
