I've been working with some forms and something occurred to me. The "description" text always appears after the the form element throughout drupals UI.
Password must be between 8 and 10 characters and only include letters and numbers.
I don't have a lot of experience with screen readers, but the visitor would have the "help" text read to them after they've entered a password correct? Wouldn't this be a nuisance of sorts because they are getting the hint after the fact?
Is this a valid concern? I don't want to investigate a fix if this really isn't a problem.
