The validation tag helper targets the HTML
span element, and is used to render property-specific validation error messages.

Validation tag helpers display both client-side and server-side validation error messages. They apply a CSS class named
field-validation-valid to the span, which is changed to
field-validation-error in the event that the form value is invalid. These styles are added to any others that you specify via the
<span asp-validation-for="FirstName" class="myclass"></span>
<span class="myclass field-validation-valid" data-valmsg-for="FirstName" data-valmsg-replace="true"></span>
It is customary to position the tag helper as close to the control that it refers to so that it is easier for users to relate the error message to the relevant form value.
