has anyone else noticed problems with opera 7.5's implementation fieldset? when i place a fieldset in a (tableless css)form it becomes tiny - about 2-3ems in height. i think this is due to float all the form elements but firefox and IE get it "right". is opera right or is it wrong? and if it is right then how can i modify a css form to respect opera's interpretation of it?
If what you mean is that the size of the fieldset box ignores all the floated labels and inputs then Safari does the same - which probably means that it's the 'right' way to render it and the other browsers have it wrong.
The best solution I found (short of inserting <BR>'s was to add a div just before the </fieldset>:
thankyou suzyUK. thats fixed it. i know its naughty but i was quite happy to ignore this problem in opera if it was opera's implementation of the fieldset that was at fault. now i've discovered opera is correct i'm happy to fix it.
