Martin Schmidkunz napsal(a):
What is the proper way of aligning form elements in webYaST?

Dialog elements in a form are aligned via css.
Dialog elements belonging to each other are surrounded by <fieldset>.
You may give a fieldset an id and and a class for further use.
Just a note, fieldset *must* have id and all ids in html page (not only
in fieldset but all) must be unique for valid xhtml code.

If you want to use headlines in a form, use <fieldset>.
Form elements are separated by putting each form element into a single

What is advantage of usage <p> over <div>?

The description of a form element, which is shown on the left side
later, is surrounded by <label>
In order to allow the user to activate an input field by clicking on the
form element description the "label for" and the text field tag/form id
have to be identical.

Code example:
