I would say inside: if you say what a form serves for, user should first know that there is a form around. If they didn't here 'form' in their screen reader first, they won't know.

Dear All

Help with fieldsets

which is the prefered method for marking up form elemets

ie

<fieldset>
   <legend>Test<l/egend>
    <p>Descriptive text of the form purpose</p>
    <lablel for="testitem">Test Form Item<lable>
    <input type="test" id="testitem" />
</fieldset>


Or
 <p>Descriptive text of the form purpose</p>
<fieldset>
   <legend>Test<l/egend>
    <lablel for="testitem">Test Form Item<lable>
    <input type="test" id="testitem" />
</fieldset>



ie have the <p> tag to describe the form fuction to the user either inside or outside  the fieldset

Regards

Andrew
