Hi Brenson: <_span_> works great, unfortunately, plese correct me if I am wrong, semantics of this tag have been diminished ( see _schema.org_ for interaction microdata literature, and doubts).
labeling, even being a common practice used by developers targeting some modern devices in opur days, it is not 'semantic' as you well mention, and should be always nested as a child of the_ form_ tag. To resolve your needs, I,a s mentioned, agreed _strong _will acomplish them.
