I want to be able to append the error message to the label for each input.  I also would like to be able to do that to every label and input in my form.  I tried this code but it does not work.  It appends all the error messages to one label.  New to all this ugh!
Thanks

<script>
  $(document).ready(function(){
								 
    $("#commentForm").validate( {

	  errorPlacement: function (error, element) {
             
			 $('#name_label').append(error); 
			 $('#email_label').append(error);
         }           
	     });
  
  });
  </script>

<label for="name" id="name_label">Name</label>
     <em>*</em><input id="name" name="name" size="25" class="required"  />
   
     <label for="email" id="email_label">E-Mail</label>
     <em>*</em><input id="email" name="email" size="25"  class="email required" />

what does the argument "element" contains in your function "errorPlacement"?
is it actual id of the element, or the element (DOM object) itself?

if it contains id of the label field
then replace  $('#name_label').append(error); with $('#'+element).append(error);

This works great I just wish I understood it better.
I do not understand your question "But what when the error goes away?"
