I think you should use labels and fieldset and CSS to style the form. i have done something simple which you can modify.

Good luck.

MD
<style type="text/css">

#form{
 

		margin:1em 0;
 

		color:#000000;
 

		width:300px;

		 /* customize width, this form have fluid layout */
 

		}

		

		#form h3{
 

		margin:0;
 

		background:#57a700 url(../images/form2/form_heading.gif) repeat-x;		
 

		color:#fff;
 

		font-size:20px;
 

		border:1px solid #57a700;
 

		border-bottom:none;
 

		}		
 
 
 

#form fieldset{
 

		margin:0;
 

		padding:10px;
 

		border:none;	
 

		border-top:3px solid #FFF;
 

		background:#FFFFFF;	
 

		padding-bottom:1em;
 

		}		

		

		#wrapper

		{

			background:#666;

			border:solid 1px #fff;

			

			width:300px;
 

			padding:15px;

			/*overflow:auto;*/

			color:#FFFFFF;

			

			

/*			font-weight:bold;*/

	}

</style>
