selenium label locator uses getAttribute('for') which does not work in IE 6/7

Reported by Rob Aldred | December 17th, 2009 @ 01:31 PM

locatedLabel.getAttribute('for') in label.js
returns null in IE 6 & 7 (IE8 untested)

after some searching it appears getting the for attribute is not supported with getAttribute in IE.
suggest using htmlFor
