Description

19 years ago
A FIELDSET element which is not in a FORM element is unstylable.

For example, the following will not be red:

   <fieldset style="color:red">
      <p>I should be red.</p>
   </fieldset>

See the test case:
   http://www.bath.ac.uk/%7Epy8ieh/internet/projects/mozilla/widgets/09.html

If the FIELDSET element is wrapped in a FORM element then styling works fine.

Eric, you own field sets these days don't you?
If not, reassign back to me.

Migrating from {css1} to css1 keyword. The {css1}, {css2}, {css3} and {css-moz}
radars should now be considered deprecated in favour of keywords.
I am *really* sorry about the spam...

Rod I thinking that perhaps gecko should once again own fieldsets. They are no 
longer used in XUL. Let me know if thats a problem.
