The HTML label tag is used to add a text label to an item on a Web page that the user can manipulate, such as a radio button or check box. This tag allows the user to check the button or box by clicking on the associated text.
The label tag enhances the accessibility of Web pages by making it easier to click on small items, such as text boxes. Some users have trouble manipulating items like this, and adding an associated text label to the item creates a larger space for the user to click on. Using the label tag does not affect the appearance of the page.
