groupbox

The groupbox is used to group related elements together. If a caption element is placed inside the groupbox, it will be used as a caption which appears along the top of the groupbox. Typically, the groupbox will be drawn with a border around it and the caption either above or over the top border, however the actual appearance will be platform specific. On Linux, for instance, only the caption appears with no border around the group.

More information is available in the XUL tutorial.
