Good one Pasquale,

Just a few more suggestions:

1. I'm not sure why "braille and large print formats" is <strong> in the
third opening para.

2. Change <h3>Quick Tips Form</h3> to <h3>Quick Tips Order Form</h3>. And
possibly make it a local anchor (from  "form below" in the opening line)?

3. Consider changing "Address 1:" to "Line 1:" and "Address 2 (if
required):" to "Line 2 (if required):". Or maybe it should be "Street (Line
1)" or ??? "Address" to me always seems to imply full address and I often
start putting in my Town as well as the Street or PO Box. Any other
suggestions from anyone on wording for this?

4. Can we break up Order 1/2/3 somehow? Should these be sub-fieldsets? or
even just an <hr /> to separate?

Hi Shawn, hi all,
here's the form after your suggestions.

I tried with "submit" button without fieldset, but W3C Validator didn't
validate without it. I think it's because document is XHTML 1.0 strict. In
fact, if I change DTD in XHTML 1.0 transitional, W3C Validator validates
also without fieldset.

It's very difficult to align the text box. If I use "float: right" for text
input, IE became crazy (it doesn't like float declaration), even if with all
other browsers it goes right.
I think that if we use a three column layout for the new WAI site, maybe the
way I put text box can permit to insert the form in the central column.

Then, I put a black border around fieldset and made bold the button legend.
I also put color black to the legend because in a IE6 version they were
blue; I really don't know why.

I tested it on all Mac browsers, Firefox 1.0 and IE6 for Win, and also with
a 800x600 monitor resolution. With CSS disabled it looks nice.
