HTML <label> Tag
The tag is used to specify a label for the element of the form. It adds a label to the form control such as text, email, password, textrae etc. It toggles the control when the user clicks on the text in the <label> element.

If you click on a label tag, it will become an expert in text management. To do this, you want to get the attribute in the label tag that should be the same as the ID attribute of the input tag.

Note:- It is good to use the tag with the form, although it is X Gracia. However, if you can use it, then you will notice it after you tap or click on the label tag. It deserves extra with the touchscreen.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>

  <title>HTML Label Tag</title>
</head>

<body>
  <h1>HTML Label Tag Example</h1>

<form>
