Accessibility Checkpoint Radio buttons without fieldset


All radio button groups should be contained in a fieldset element.


When a screen reader reads a page in Forms Mode it skips all markup other than form fields, labels and legends. Generally each radio button label is the answer to a question (e.g. Yes/No, Male/Female), so fieldset and legend elements are needed to say what the question is.
