Screen reader accessibility problem
See #23 (comment). That comment has potential to cause a rework of the HTML contract for inputs.
Other thing to discuss
One thing that is missing from the styleguide designs is inputs whose labels are to the side instead of on top. For example:
Labels such as these are helpful for really long forms, because there are nice vertical lines that the eye can scan easily to find the label text you're looking for.
In my opinion, OpenMRS should have both kinds of inputs and use them depending on if it's a really long form or a short form. I don't think we need to worry designing and building this other kind of input label right now, but I want to make sure that our HTML/CSS contract from the styleguide will be suitable for when we use labels that are not embedded right next to the input.
Do you think the current HTML/CSS contract will be usable for situations like that?
