Description Jeremiah Lee Cohick 2011-05-25 22:52:35 UTC
In The maxlength attribute <>, the example should use most proper syntax, consistent with other examples.


What are you doing? <input name=status maxlength=140>

should be:

<label>What are you doing? <input name="status" maxlength="140"/></label>

mass-move component to LC1
Comment 2 Anne 2011-08-15 16:07:08 UTC
The syntax is fine. Using <label> is prolly a good idea.
