Hello,

Can someone please tell me how to make a box outline that has a title within the outline and contains radiobuttons or textboxes inside.  I need to have this inside of a html table <td>.  I need it to look something like this.  Thanks a lot. msyed1.

put a table within the <td>


<td>
  <TABLE border="1">
   <TR>
    <TD>
      title goes here
    </TD>
   </TR>
   <TR>
    <TD>
      <INPUT type="text" name="mytext" value="" />
    </TD>
   </TR>
  </TABLE>
</td>

KnightEKnight:
The above does not print the words "Last Update" within the table (border) outline.  It prints it as a separate <TR> table row.  That's not what I am looking for.  Please see the image I drew.

YOU NEED TO USE <fieldset>

eg:

<fieldset>
<legend>TITLE HERE</legend>
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
</fieldset>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

BTW
You cannot CENTER that heading with any EASE...
although you can manipulate it with CSS....

eg

<fieldset style="border: 1px solid #000;">
<legend style="background-color: #EEE; padding: 3px 10px; border: 1px solid #000;">TITLE HERE</legend>
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
CONTENT HERE<br />
</fieldset>
