Select the position of an intput client error message

By Carlos Henriques on 28 Jun 2011
If I do a client validation of the input fields, the error message (the red rectangle) is shown always at the right side of the input field.
It would be better if it was possible to select it's position like bottom, left or top.

If I have an input or a combobox in the far right of the page, the error message will be cut off, because some part of it will be out of the browser area.

Indeed, especially in pop-ups this is annoying, having to extend the right border (which is ugly) just in case any validation errors are shown (or face a scroll bar, that consequently disappears if you are trying to scroll because of loss of focus of the pertaining input field).
