HTML <fieldset> Tag

Description

The <fieldset> HTML element specifies a set of form fields. It is generally used to group logically related controls and labels within a web form. Grouping form controls makes it easier for users to understand their purpose and makes the documents more accessible.
For greater clarity, browsers display the result of using the <fieldset> element as a frame. Its appearance depends on the operating system, as well as the browser used.
