    What is the basis for some of these decisions?

    Place labels on the left of fields in case of large forms and on top for smaller forms.

    It would be cool if you linked to studies or some more specific reasoning, rather than just blanket statements.

      Thanks, Dan. That's a great idea! I'll add this info in version 2.0 of this article.

      I agree some validation of many of these viewpoints would be useful. A few in particular (form placeholders) run counter to some research done by folks like NNGroup, etc.

      I'd also like to see things judged in more quantitative terms than "professional" which is used a few times. We can judge professionalism in different ways, but legibility can be measured.
