HTML Legend align attribute


Align the fieldset caption to the right:
    <legend align="right">Personalia:</legend>
    Name: <input type="text" size="30" /><br />
    Email: <input type="text" size="30" /><br />
    Date of birth: <input type="text" size="10" />

Definition and Usage

The align attribute specifies the alignment of the caption in a fieldset.

Browser Support

The "top", "left" and "right" values of this attribute seems to be well supported in all the major browsers except opera. However, the "bottom" value does not work in any of the major browsers.

Compatibility Notes

The align attribute of the legend element was deprecated in HTML 4.01, and is not supported in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD.
Browsers treat the legend element differently, which makes it hard to style with CSS. So, even though the align attribute is deprecated, it may still be the best way of aligning legend text.


<legend align="value">

Attribute Values
