Login page missing a h1 heading

Bug #1839365 reported by Tiffany Little on 2019-08-07

Bug Description

The login page has text that resembles a heading but is not marked as such. The "Sign In" text should be wrapped in <h1> tags. This will help with screen reader and keyboard-only navigation.

<legend>Sign In</legend>

Hi Sam,

The commit you pushed includes deletes to two files that don't look like they should be included. Can you please rebase?

Rebased and pushed back up. Hopefully I did that right.

Okay, now it's definitely rebased and pushed back up without the mystery deleted files.

Thanks, Sam!

Normally h1 and legend wouldn't be nested like this, but since it's arguably both a page title and a form title, and it doesn't appear to break anything to have them nested, I'm okay with it. If anyone else would rather avoid that and just use one, I would opt for the h1 only as it's more appropriate for accessibility needs.

My sign-off patch:

Pushed to master, rel_3_5, and rel_3_4. Thanks, Shula and Terran!

Per https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45362950/header-or-legend, the fieldset could probably be taken out entirely, along with the legend tag, but that can be the subject of another patch.
