    Form placement

    Hey guys,

    I've got two issues that I can't solve on my own.
    Here is the picture:

    I want to move the textarea right next to the name (basically move it up). I tried different combinations of display properties, floating and aligning, but without success. Here's the code:
    HTML Code:
    <form>
    <fieldset>
    	<label>Name:</label>
    	<input name='name' />
    	<label>Email:</label>
            <input name='email' />
    	<textarea name='comments'></textarea>
    	<input id='submit' type='submit' value='SUBMIT'></input>
    	</fieldset>
    </form>
    Code:
    label{
    	display: block;
    	font-family: dolce vita;
    	font-size: 150%;
    	color:#ffa6b0;
    }	
    
    input{
    	margin-bottom: 40px;
    	background:#ffa6b0;
    	border: none;
    	width: 350px;
    	height: 30px;
    	font-size: 130%;
    	line-height: 30px;
    	color: white;
    }	
    
    fieldset{
    	text-align: left;
    	width: 60%;
    	margin: 50px auto;
       	color: white;
    	font-size: 130%;
    }
    
    #submit{
    	border: 2px solid #ffa6b0;
    	width: 150px;
    	height: 50px;
    	line-height: 50px;
    	background: none;
    	color: #ffa6b0;
    	font-family: dolce vita heavy;
    	letter-spacing: 2px;
    	font-size: 180%;
    }
    
    #submit:hover{
    	background:#ffa6b0;
    	color: #7a0026;
    }
    
    textarea{
    	float: right;
    	background:#ffa6b0;
    	border: none;
    	width: 350px;
    	height: 250px;
    }
    The other problem is with the footer. I need to move the 'back to top' button next to the copyright stuff (so they are center alighned vertically with one another. Here's the code:
    HTML Code:
    <footer>
    			<div id='copy'>
    				<p>Copyright 2013 &nbsp<span id='fld'>Fresh Lime Design</span> &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp design & development Michal Šesták</p> 
    			</div>
    			<a href='#container'><h1>g</h1></a>
    </footer>
    Code:
    #copy{
    	text-align: center;
    }
    
    footer  h1{
    	background: url('../images/up.png');
    	height: 74px;
    	width: 74px;
    	text-indent: 100%;
    	white-space: nowrap;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	float: right;
    	transition: 0.3s;
    }

    Simplest solution would be to simply move up the text area:

    Code:
    <form>
    <fieldset>
        <textarea name='comments'></textarea>
    	<label>Name:</label>
    	<input name='name' />
    	<label>Email:</label>
            <input name='email' />
    	
    	<input id='submit' type='submit' value='SUBMIT'></input>
    	</fieldset>
    </form>
    As for your footer, I don't see anything in that code that says "Back to top."

    Ye, that fixed the form

    For the footer, I meant the image. Didn't notice the name difference. Sorry.

    Not sure if you wanted the "Back To Top" button next to the copyright notice in all respects:

    CSS
    Code:
    FOOTER {
    	padding: 10px 0;
    
    	border: 1px solid #000; /*TODO: REMOVE*/
    }
    FOOTER DIV {
    	height: 74px;
    	line-height: 74px;
    	text-align: center;
    }
    FOOTER DIV A {
    	background: url('../images/up.png');
    	display: inline-block;
    	height: 74px;
    	width: 74px;
    	vertical-align: top;
    	margin-left: 5px;
    	transition: 0.3s;
    
    	border: 1px solid black; /*TODO: REMOVE*/
    }
    HTML
    HTML Code:
    <footer>
    	<div>
    		Copyright 2013 <span id="fld" style="margin: 0 20px 0 10px;">Fresh Lime Design</span> design &amp; development Michal Šesták
    		<a href="#container"></a>
    	</div>
    </footer>
    There's some bordering styles I used in there so I could see how things were aligning, you can remove them.

    just a suggestion it would make it easier for us to troubleshoot with an actual website or use a service like codepen.io (especially when images are involved)

    Thank you bionoid. I must have had the html wrong as well... now I implemented your code into the website and it works!

    Kralcx, that's why I included an image screenshot. But ye, next time I can go through codepen or my website.
