HTML fieldset Tag

The information on this page is based on HTML version 4.01 (which is the current version of HTML). The next version, HTML 5, is currently being written. Here's a list of HTML 5 tags.

The HTML fieldset tag is used for grouping related form elements. By using the fieldset tag and the legend tag, you can make your forms much easier to understand for your users.

Also see HTML legend tag.

<fieldset style="text-align:right;">
<legend><b>Address Details</b></legend>
Favorite Address <input type="text" /><br />
Least Favorite Address <input type="text" /><br />
Current Address <input type="text" /><br />
Your Next Address <input type="text" /><br />
