Doing it with style

styling forms COMMENTS

Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Markus, I think that it would be a bit over the top, but yes it could be done. I am thinking of asking visitors for their css for this form and have a style sheet switcher (so I may include this feature).

I agree with Markus, from a usability standpoint it's always a good idea to correctly tie the label to the element for ease of clicking.

BTW, the 'sneezing' checkbox overruns the line in Safari, ending up on a line of its own. Let me know if you want a screenshot?

The same in Opera. The last checkbox is wrapped to the next line. Implementing a style switcher would be a good idea I think. There's so much that could be done with a simple form.

Markus, I will re upload the page shortly with changes to add ids (including inputs). I am not sure why the wrap in Opera and Safari but will take a look to see if it can be fixed.
The style switcher is on the cards.

Markus, fixed (I hope). You can now click on the labels including lastname, firstname etc. I have removed the unstyled form as this would duplicate ids.

@Stu: an entry you can expect shortly, fully styled of course.

Steve, I have checked it out using Opera v8.5 and it looks ok. But I will try something else.

Now fixed in Opera and Safari, I hope.

Thanks for adding my form-css! btw. Stu, what I have missed were <p> tags surrounding the e.g. "... more personal information..." part. They could help to separate the text from labels/inputs or if somebody wants to give a different background-color or -img to certain fieldsets...
