Hi

why are there legend in Form.ss template yet they are not being used.

here is an extract of Form.ss

<legend>$Legend</legend>

because Page.ss is n xhtml it changes this to <legend /> and this will create a a blank legend with a height of about 20px in IE.
It pushes the the action button down a bit.
It will be nice to change this to

<% if Legend %><legend>$Legend</legend><% end_if %>

to block them if they are not available.

in SearchForm.ss its even worse, its just

<legend></legend>

are these "Legends" really necessary

AFAIK legend tags are needed for some levels of section 508 / WCAG validation. If your form has no legend then you could just set legend { display: none; } in your css.
