I think that the solution that was recommended to you is a good one.
Using the BR tag may be more backward-compatible, but the form elements
showed up on new lines on Opera 6 (with styles turned off) and Netscape
3, so maybe this isn't too big of an issue. If, with further testing,
you find that other older browsers (and browsers with styles turned off)
don't have significant problems, I would go ahead and use the
recommended solution that you were given.

Hey all:

(Apologies to anyone who's already received this on another list...
multiple times.)

I'm working on a table-less form and it .... well it pretty much looks
like
crap. I'm using <label> and <fieldset> elements but could use some
help...

Login as: guest_admin (pass admin) and click on "new user" to see the
big
form in question. Please do NOT add data. Thanks. :)

was recommended as one way of laying out forms, does anyone have any
other
suggestions? I noticed that this example uses <div>s to make each of the

rows. Is this a good way to do things, or should I stick with plain ol'
<br />?

Thanks :)
