Thanks Ben, that worked, once I'd sorted out a legend too, and I
didn't need the <p> after all:

<form method='post'
action='myP.php4'><fieldset><legend>Reg</legend><input type="hidden"
name="PHPSESSID" value="d7934eec6b91b328daf311d5c28edfa0" /><input
type='hidden' name='sub' value='1'><input type='hidden' name='uc'
value='1'><input type='image' src='images/reg.gif' name='reg'
alt='Register' title='Register'
