Here’s a simple question, and one which I feel should have a definitive answer. Assuming that an asterisk is the correct way to indicate a required field in a form, where should it go?
Should it be:
1. To the left of the label?
* Name: [input field]
2. To the right of the label?
Name: * [input field]
3. To the right of the required field?
Name: [input field] *
Shouldn’t there be one right answer to this question?
While I’m on the subject, should the asterisk be separated by a space from the label/field or should it immediately precede or follow it with no additional separation?
