The code I am using is appearing fine in FF but in IE, it resorts to the legend appearing almost in the fieldset with no space for the legend after the fieldset. I have included pic so you can see exact problem. I would be grateful if someone could show me where I am going wrong? I have placed complete code @ 

I find the layout here when you enter code, too restrictive. seems to throw it all out and you spend more time correcting it.  Thanks
legend {
          background:#00C621; color:#fff; 
          font:17px/21px Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; 
          padding:0 10px; margin:-26px 0 -5px -11px; 
          font-weight:bold; border:1px solid #fff; 
          border-color:#e5e5c3 #505014 #666661 #e5e5c3; cursor: pointer;

fieldset.action {
          border-color:#e5e5e5 #797c80 #797c80 #e5e5e5; 

fieldset {
          padding: 0 10px 10px 10px; 
          border:1px solid #fff; 
          border-color:#666661 #fff #666661 #fff; 
          margin-bottom:20px; width:450px;
