My "article" on this is rather old at this point, but probably still relevant in your case. Maybe it will be helpful to you.

Subject: [thelist] Styling the caption tag

Just doing a table, (of tabular data) and having a bit of trouble getting the caption to style how I want it. Or to be more specific getting IE to play.

I can get the caption on the left easily but what I want is to have a form element + label + submit button on the right;

[table caption goes here][form stuff goes here]
[table in here]

However I do it doesn't want to work, it seems that the caption is always the width of the table so sits above the form elements (in IE6). Bizarely it works in IE5 Mac! Second attempt below, I have also tried floats but that gives unexpected results in IE PC as well...
