    form layout

    I have a long form that I want to give a layout rather than have it all in one column. But I cant seem to do it, should I use tables for layout? What I want is two columns to add bits of the form to.

    I just have this css but it is not making two columns.
    #formdiv {width: 80%; float:left; display:inline;}
    #formlside {width: 40%; float:left; display:inline;}
    #formrside {margin-left: 400px; float:right;}
    I want the form to be as accessible and semantic as possible
