Next, you'll change the style of the field set legends, defining each legend to appear
as white text on a medium-red background.
To add a style rule for the field set legends:
1. Directly below the style for the field set selector, add the following style rule as
shown in Figure 6-17:
legend {
background-color: rgb(233, 69, 0);
color: white;
padding: 3px 0px;
text-indent: 5px;
width: 100%;
figure 6-17
styles for the field set legends
displays the legends in white text
on a red background
sets the text indent and the
padding space around the legend
sets t he width of each legend to
100% of the width of the field set
2. Save your changes to the file.
Finally, since the default style for labels and input controls is to display them inline,
they appear to run together on the form. Alice suggests that you instead display them as
blocks and float them side-by-side within the two field sets to make them easier to read.
