I want better, easier form fields

Submitted by Eric Eggert

Judges’ Pick

Forms are complicated. They can have multiple issues, depending on how to structure them. My want consists of the following:

In addition, I’d like to see easier, less error prone ways to define a form field:

<formfield type="text"
value=""
label="Your Name"
name="name">

would create a properly labeled text field. No need for developers to create IDs, no opportunity for typos. And if a browser doen’t support it yet, it’s relatively easy to polyfill, too.
