    "Flagging" by WHAT? What tool is telling you this?

    Though in terms of mistakes the first one is simple, where's your LABEL tag for that select? Selects need a LABEL just like INPUT and TEXTAREA do, you have none.

    The second one is filled with gibberish nonsense. Where's your fieldset? Prior to HTML 5 inline-level tags like INPUT could not be direct children of a FORM, and it's still semantic gibberish today that can have rendering issues. another of HTML 5's idiotic dumbass changes. You have no NAME on your hidden input, there is likely zero reason for them to even have ID, and those stupid dumbass aria role garbage serve ZERO legitimate purpose on a hidden input. The pointless classes likely aren't helping matters much either... Laundry list of how NOT to use HTML..

    But I suspect a lot of that is some form of scripttardery pissing all over accessibility by building forms that don't even work when JavaScript is disabled -- an instand WCAG violation and failure to grasp how to use HTML properly.
