Great Guide to Web Form Usability from Smashing Magazine

Justin Mifsud has compiled a concise and extensive guide to usability and web forms. He uses three main aspects of forms (Relationship, Conversation and Appearance) to explore best practices related to usability. This is not a “one size fits all” recipe either. He goes into why you might want to design one type of form differently than another. For example, he talks about why you might think about placing labels to the left rather than above inputs to slow users down in complex forms.
