[Bug 14521] New: Why does <fieldset> have <legend> but <table> have <caption> ? I think they both ought to use either <legend> or <caption>. This would eliminate a tag and reduce complexity. Both <legend> and <caption> are basically the same thing anyways?

           Summary: Why does <fieldset> have <legend> but <table> have
                    <caption> ? I think they both ought to use either
                    <legend> or <caption>. This would eliminate a tag and
                    reduce complexity. Both <legend> and <caption> are

I think they both ought to use either <legend> or <caption>.
This would eliminate a tag and reduce complexity.

Both <legend> and <caption> are basically the same thing anyways?
