Is there a form element meant to provide instruction?

I know how to add labels to form inputs to ‘label’ what they are. I am wondering if there is something similar for describing what a field is in more details? I want to there to be little text under a text field but don’t know if there is a specific element I should use… thanks!


What is an orphaned form label?

When using the Wave Scanner to repair my website I saw the warning “Orphaned Form Label”, with the description was “a form label is present but it is not correctly associated with a form control”. What is this?
