In this chapter we will discuss creating standards compliant forms. …We will explore properly structuring your forms; controlling layout with CSS and using…Dreamweaver's form accessibility tools.

The background is the bottom rounded corner graphic, the bottom padding keeps the type away from the bottom of the box and thus the rounded corners, and the margin ensures that the box elements fit seamlessly with each other.
