HTMLFieldSetElement <fieldset>

The HTMLFieldSetElement interface provides special properties and methods (beyond the regular HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating the layout and presentation of <fieldset> elements. The <fieldset> tag is used to group related elements in a form. The <fieldset> tag draws a box around the related elements.
