The padding of the "Contact form" fieldset is not correctly set. It should have 0.5em for top, right, bottom, left... But currently it's not working (at least the padding-right). I'm pretty sure it's because of my floated elements in that fieldset.

How can I have a 0.5em padding for this fieldset? I don't want any CSS hacks. It must be HTML 4.01 strict compilant.

Thanks!

"It must be HTML 4.01 strict compilant."

Use pixels rather than EM.  You will find that some browsers seem not to interpret EM correctly.  Pixels is the way to get all browsers to interpret the CSS correctly -- at least in my experience with modern ones.
