You don't need Javascript for this; use the HTML label tag.

<p>Try clicking on the text labels:</p>
<form name="input" action="">
<input type="radio" name="sex" id="male" />
<label for="male">Male</label>
<br />
<input type="radio" name="sex" id="female" />
<label for="female">Female</label>
</form>

There is a potential problem relying on the html label solution above: I am trying to set up a list of buttons using javascript to highlight the selected option.

<span onClick = "jfsw(2,la,10);">
<input type="radio" name="cruts21t" id="19111920" value="19111920" />
<label class="radio" id="cruts21tb" for="19111920">1911-1920</label>
</span>

In the above, the javascript function jfsw highlights the label when the input or label is clicked on. The problem is that firefox 2.0.0.13 leaves a small space between the input symbol and the label. Clicking on this space activates the javascript but does not select the corresponding radio button. Internet Explorer appears not to have this problem.

Can the format of the label be made to change when the button is checked without using javascript?

This is how I would do it

<p>Try clicking on the text labels:</p>
<form name="input" action="">
<input type="radio" name="sex" id="male" />
<label for="male">Male</label>
<br />
<input type="radio" name="sex" id="female" />
<label for="female">Female</label>
</form>

<span onClick = "jfsw(2,la,10);">
<input type="radio" name="cruts21t" id="19111920" value="19111920" />
<label class="radio" id="cruts21tb" for="19111920">1911-1920</label>
</span>

</span>

Try that ... the newline is interpreted as a space-character between the radio and the label

...

Thanks Langsor, that reduces the gap, but does not eliminate it. With Firefox rendering, there is also a small area beneath the input button, but inside the enclosing span, which does not change the selection.

use this only a little change

add lable

<label><input type="radio" name="grp" value="Yes" tabindex="1">Yes</label>
