HTML HTML Forms Organizing Forms The Label Element

My lables don`t focus on the corresponding fields when clicked on.

<lable for="name">Name:</lable> <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">

The above is an example of what I did and it still does not focus on the corresponding field when I click it. Any ideas? Tx

Is just a spelling issue. You wrote "lable" instead of "label" (twice).

It's normal for HTML tags that are not recognized to be simply ignored by the browser. But the text is still rendered (as a plain text node).

Browser's won't reveal this type of error but you can run the page through an HTML validator. The "official" online validator is available at validator.w3.org.

Nooooo! Txs! Would you know why I still was able to see the labels name, email, etc although the element was spelt wrong? It seems to me that it shouldn't have rendered the form with all the labels. Then I would have known where to check for errors.

it's the closing tag that is misspelt, meaning that the attribute won't load properly (In this case the focus). Since the tag is open, it's taking everything after the attribute to be the focus destination. Correct the spelling in the closing tag and give it another shot.

I expanded my answer to explain the text rendering.
