If I want to publish a suitable-for-printing Web page and I choose to use 
XHTML-Print directly for publication purposes, I will not be able to use 
those tags. How can I get the functionality of fieldset, legend and 
optgroup in XHTML-Print? optgroup might not seem too important because 
options are usually not rendered (in current browsers, but this might 
change) in printed versions, but fieldset and legend are still interesting 
for printed versions, isn't it?

Thank you. I just hope it becomes a recommendation soon. :-)
