[thelist] Search Form accessibility question

I'm getting three errors when I check my 508 compliance with Bobby:

1) Explicitly associate form controls and their labels with the LABEL

2) Make sure that labels of all form controls are properly placed.

3) If there are logical groupings of form controls, use FIELDSET with LEGEND
on each group.

My questionable code:

<form id="searchform" action="index.html" method="get"><p
id="searchinput"><input id="search" maxlength="255" size="10"
value="&nbsp;search" name="search">&nbsp;<input type="submit"

And the page:


I know I'm missing something simple here, but I've looked at this a number
of times and I'm getting nowhere. The page validates as HTML4.01 Strict and
valid CSS. All applicable code is in the source.

Jeez, it's just a search box...

TIA, Rick.
