Search function not valid XHTML

I saw a topic started a while back about the search function not validating as XHTML but I couldn't reply to it as it's in the archive, so I thought I'd do a new one.

I'm using the W3C validator which doesn't like the 'input' tags being nested in just a form element, giving the following error:

document type does not allow element "input" here; missing one of "ins", "del", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "p", "div", "address", "fieldset" start-tag.

I fixed this by modifying 'Sapphire'>'templates'>'' to have a 'fieldset' tag, it now reads:

<form $FormAttributes>
<% control Fields %>
<% end_control %>
<% control Actions %>
<% end_control %>

I couldn't see another solution on the boards so I hope this is some use to people :-)
