Tapping on <label> in Mobile Safari

Tapping on <label> does not auto-focus linked in Mobile Safari but If we add an empty function as clickhandler it works fine.

<input type="checkbox" id="test" name="test">
<label for="test" id="test_label">This is the label</label>
document.getElementById("test_label").onclick = function () {};

This is the releated Stackoverflow discussion.

Checkbox/Radio button size on Android Safari

You cannot change checkbox/radio button width/height on Android in Safari because it is tied to the OS.

But since the default ones are so tiny that you may need bigger buttons.
Here is a simple trick:

input[type=checkbox] {
-webkit-transform: scale(2,2);

Please note that if you set up values bigger than ~2 then the yellow outline will look weird.
