I don't know if you've already figured it out, but the <legend> tag basically defines a caption for a <fieldset> (set of fields in a form).  You can see an example here of how it might be used.  It helps visually group the fields together and helps for accessibility.  This is what it might look like:

"Personalia" is the <legend> tag, and the rest are fields.  It's grouped by <fieldset>.
