Sorry, little late getting in on this, quick question though. Do you
all think it's important to group your "submit" and "reset" buttons in a
fieldset with a legend? Or is it just redundant information? I am
under the impression that the submit buttons do not need labels either,
correct?



Thanks!

Steph

Hi,

While it is ok to have nested fieldset, it is important not to overuse
fieldset. It is good practice to use fieldset to group related form
elements
and nested fieldset is fine to use.

Just something to bare in mind from screen reader perspective. Only the
last
fieldset will be announced
