<FIELDSET>tag creates a box around a group of widgets and <LEGEND>tag provides a label to the field set. Both tags require closing tags.

syntax
 

<fieldset> control1 control2.........controln </fieldset>
<legend> group label text</legend>

The following code shows the use of both of these tags:

<html>

<head><title> text fields</title></head>
<bodybgcolor="pink">
<p align="center"><b>admission form</b>
<form>
<fields> <legend><h2>detail</h2></legend>
<p>
<inputtype="text"name="name"value="enter your name:"size="25"maxlength="30"> name<br><br> <input type="password"name="passwd"size="25"maxlength="30"><br><br> <input type="text"name="address"size="25"maxlength="30"> address<br><br> <input type="radio"name="sex"value="male"checked>male<br> <input type="radio"name="sex"value="female">female<br>
<select name="country">
<option value="india">india
<optionvalue="america"> america
<optionvalue="australia"> australia
<optionvalue="new zealand"> new zealand
<optionvalue="china"> china
</select><b>country</b>
<textarea name="comments"rows=2cols=20wrap="virtual:"> place your comments here: </textarea> <b> comments </b> <fieldset> <input type="file"name="attachements"size="30"accept="image/jpg"> <b> attachements</b> <palign=center>
<input type="image"src="c:\windows\hlpglobe.gif"alt="submit"width=55height=40> <input type="reset"value="reset">
