Description for forms in tables?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Leif K-Brooks, Nov 18, 2003.

  1. I'm doing forms something like this:

    <form ...>
    <table>
    <tr>
    <th>Some field</th>
    <td><input ...></td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    But I need to give some fields descriptions with instructions on what to
    fill out, etc. Any ideas?

    A third column with descriptions?

    And don't forget your <label> elements.

    Maybe, but it wouldn't really look right. Also, I don't see how the row
    header would describe the description.
