Fieldset HTML

HTML <fieldset> Tag

In an HTML form, the logically related fields or labels can be grouped using the HTML <fieldset> tag. It is however not a mandatory tag for creating an HTML form. It is used with the HTML <legend> tag to define a caption for the grouped related fields as a first child.




<!DOCTYPE html>
  <legend>Undergraduate Details:</legend><br>
  Name of University: <input type="text"><br><br>
  Year of Passing: <input type="text"><br><br>
  Aggregate Marks: <input type="text"><br><br> 
  <input type="Submit">
