What can forms contain?

I'm trying to keep my pages standards compliant, therefore, what am I allowed to place between <form></form> tags?

What am I not allowed to place between these tags?

Can I place markup between the tags, such as: <div><p><b><fieldset><legend><img><br>

Thanks!

A form can contain text and markup (paragraphs, lists, etc.) in addition to form controls.

Yes. What you are not allowed to put inside a <form> tag pair, is tags like <head> <body> or <html>. The link ozo sent is a good resource to learn. You can check your HTML to ensure it is valid code, using this page too:
