I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>

    <form action="index.html" method="post" >
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color" label="Shirt-Color">

            <option value="red">Red</option>
            <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
            <option value="purple">Purple</option>
            <option value="blue">Blue</option>
            <option value="green">Green</option>

I am trying to figure out this question. {Add a label element to the select menu with the text "Shirt Color:"}

4 Answers

Since the label is for the select element place the code just before that.

<label for="color">Shirt Color</label>

Note: The for attribute has been set to "color" which is the id of the select element.

label is a separate element with it's own tags. It has a 'for' attribute which allows you to bind the label to another element. You can read about it here
