styling forms

I am trying my hand at styling forms for the first time
I found this link out on the internet showing me what to do,
but I don't follow all that is going on.

I was wondering if someone had a few minutes to help me
clean up the top of the first form. If you look at it you will
see that I used a span to absolutly position the fieldset legend,
across the top of the first form, but for some reason the line
is still being hidden by something.

I would also like to remove the overlap that goes across the top
of the first form if that is possilble.

NOTE: I am using tables because I am still leaning how to work
with css and positioning. Once I get this form worked out I will
try to use css for the entire web page.

On the website of the Dutch Jules Verne Society (www.jules-verne.nl), we have several forms that visitors can use to order something, or to apply for membership. Of course, a form's primary purpose is to be filled out online, but I can imagine, for example, one of our members giving a talk and printing a pile of application forms to hand out to the audience. I am trying to add some specific styles in the print stylesheet so the forms...

Hi, before you say it i know frames are bad practice - but i'm developing dynamic content on a site which has already been designed, so alas there's no option but to use them.

I have an image link, an image within an anchor tag, that I would like to remove the styling of. When I say styling, I mean the default blue box around the image. I have tried: text-decoration: none; which I use to remove the underline from links, but this did not remove the box around the image link. Any thoughts?

My basic style sheet has a distinctive background and border for forms, to make the structure clearer and to make it visually evident what belongs to a form. However, as people complained that some forms were odd-looking, I noticed that indeed, fairly often the background is not applied and there is empty space inside a form I didn't ask for. This was rather puzzling until I realized that the observed cases seem to result from one...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
