 In this form, neither "Name:", "E-mail:" or "URL:" are labels.

 The only label is the title "Author" associated with the "Name:" field.
 Pretty weird. See screenshot.


 Once fixed, links can't be inside labels, it's pretty confusing. I'd
 propose to move them below the form fields. I'd say the proposed elements
 order makes sense when tabbing, e.g.:
 E-mail > {someone @ somewhere.org} -> send email

 The three form fields are now grouped in a `<fieldset>` and "Author" is
 the fieldset's `<legend>`. Added also a screen-reader-text'ed label for
 the comment's textarea. See screenshot:
