yes, but the initial hurdle is trying to convince the client and designers that it would be acceptable.  IMO they both seem to have the same desire to have pixel perfect sites that look the same on every browser, and it may take a while to convince them otherwise.

I would be glad to use scenario 1, as it would make it far easier to code, and would be more accessible to everyone.  I'm a firm believer in that as long as a page is readable, well presented and clean then it's a good design.  It doesn't matter to me if it looks slightly different from browser to browser.

I'm just researching into other possibilities so that when a client asks if we can do it a certain way, I can rule them out and explain why.

Kind Regards,

and legend and incorporate this into future form designs.  Which might not
please the designers, and indeed, clients.

What about the end-users, the people that should really matter?  Maybe they
would like the consistent way that fieldset shows up.

Just a thought....
