<legend> required in very simple form
page doesnt need it

I have a very simple form consisting of


I dont need a <legend> - the label makes it clear what its for, but i want to validate in html4 strict.

Any thoughts?

The <legend> is only required where you have a <fieldset>. It provides the caption for the <fieldset>. If you are not grouping multiple elements together with the <fieldset> (ie. just using it for the border effect around a single element) then consider using a <div> container instead?

dont need the fieldset at all, but had been doing so many big forms that when i came to mark this up i automatically structured it the same. thanks!
