Decided to post this here after reading a tweet from Dan Cederholm (of SimpleBits fame) and realizing this wasn't an issue isolated to me and me alone.  Backstory: I wrestled with this issue for a good amount of time on a recently completed project and then decided to just give up making it work. Now, with a little bit of jQuery fun you can have your forms lables working as they should on your beloved iPad (and I can check off an item on my bug list).

This bit of Google software might be just the reason why Apple decided to recently acquire their own little map company. Also, this can't be good news for the folks over at TomTom.
