<LEGEND align=bottom> should put the legend at the bottom of the fieldset; it
currently puts it at the top.  Both align=top and align=left put the legend at
the top left of the fieldset; I'd expect align=top and align=bottom to put the
legend at the center.  Attaching a testcase.

Actually HTML4.0 Deprecated this
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/interact/forms.html#h-17.10

Currently we do what IE does. It looks at left, center, and right. The current 
CSS spec says left, top, bottom, right. Which doesn't really make sense. And 
when you say "left" do you mean left top? left bottom? It would have been better 
for them to just use "align=left|center|right" and valign="top|bottom". So until 
they staighten it out. We are doing what makes sense. Besides its deprecated 
anyway. And the CSS values for text-align (which usually maps to align) can only 
be "left|center|right".
