You aren't required to use the label element. That's up to you. If you want to apply a color to the text, you can using CSS. For example, in your style sheet...

 label { color: red }

JorgeM, sorry to butt in but I thought that labels had to be used around any input to satisfy section 508?


sorry, thanks for the clarification. My response was related more from a technical perspective than from complying with a W3C standard/guideline.

In other words, I meant that a label is not required with regard to changing the color of the words after the input element as asked by arturLIT. I should have been more specific in my response.
