HTML Checking for Large Sites

Rocket Validator automatically checks your pages on the W3C Validator.

The element “input” must not appear as a descendant of an element with the attribute “role=button”.

An element with role=button can’t have an input element as descendant.

The ARIA role button can be added to an element to make it behave like a <button> – just like a <button> is not allowed to contain other <input> elements as descendants, any element with this role is not allowed to contain them either.

All these examples in the following code will raise a similar issue:

<div role="button">
  <input type="checkbox" />
</div>

<button>
  <input type="checkbox" />
</button>

<a>
  <input type="checkbox" />
</a>
