Use fieldset to Organize Form Elements

The <fieldset></fieldset> tags provide a way to organize groups of related form input elements. The <fieldset> tag draws a box around the related elements. Shown below is example code that uses the html fieldset tags.

<form method="get" action="program_name" style="width:240px;">
<fieldset>
Name: <input type="text"><br />
Dept: <input type="text"><br />
Title: <input type="text"><br />
Email: <input type="text"><br />
</fieldset>
<fieldset>
<input type="checkbox" name="Red">Red<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="Green">Green<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="Blue">Blue<br />
</fieldset>
</form>

Shown below is how fieldsets would appear on a web page.

Name:
Dept:  
Title:   
Email: 
Red
Green
Blue

The fieldset tags are commonly used along with the <legend></legend> tags, which provide a way to label the groups of related form elements.

Personal Information Name:
Dept:  
Title:   
Email: 
Color Preferences Red
Green
Blue

Shown below is example code that uses the legend tags along with the fieldset tags.

<form method="get" action="program_name" style="width:240px;">
<fieldset>
Personal Information
Name: <input type="text"><br />
Dept: <input type="text"><br />
Title: <input type="text"><br />
Email: <input type="text"><br />
</fieldset>
<fieldset>
<legend>Color Preferences</legend>
<input type="checkbox" name="Red">Red<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="Green">Green<br />
<input type="checkbox" name="Blue">Blue<br />
</fieldset>
</form>

Placing a class or id attribute inside the opening <fieldset> allows you to apply CSS styles to the border and background of the fieldset.
