What

TWiki could benefit from a simple yet overlooked HTML feature: LABEL tags in FORMs. It's a simple change to the templates that won't affect other features, and older browsers simply skip it. Besides, the LABEL tag has been around for ages and should be widely supported.

Why

By using LABEL tags in the TWiki template forms, users can click the the Release edit lock label instead of having to hit just the tiny checkbox itself. By using LABEL tags, the usability is improved without any sacrifices.

This goes not only for the checkboxes in the preview mode but for all checkboxes and radio buttons throughout TWiki, e.g. WebSearch and other pages as well.

This also supports the concept of AccessKeys, but that is of minor importance to this FeatureEnhancementRequest.

How

Example:
<input type="checkbox" name="unlock" checked="checked" /> Release edit lock
becomes:
<label><input type="checkbox" name="unlock" checked="checked" /> Release edit lock<label>
