I would just like someone to clear something up for me I was under the
impression that fieldset (as the name describes) should only be used to
group form elements. However I have recently seen it used to group any other
elements img, p etc.

Could some one please point me to some documentation saying it should only
be used for forms, if so, because I have successfully validated a page using
fieldset in this way.
