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>
