In the code below - does anyone know how I can get the left and right hand
margins to be justified evenly - when I play with the field size attritubtes it turns into a nightmare -

Thanks

Well, as I have understood your problem - it's kind of impossible to solve it - to get what you want, as I imagine it. You want to have even margins everywhere: in the left, in the middle and in the right. But there are some lines, where there are two or even three fields. I have provided a code to align some fields:

<html>
<form>
<table width="87%" border="0" cellpadding="1">

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Card Number:</b>
    <TD><input name="card_num" size=20 align="right"></font>

    <font size=-1><b>Expiration Date:</b>
    <input name="expir_num" size=11 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Cardholder Name:</b>
    <TD><input name="cardh_name" size=40 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Signature:</b>
    <TD><input name="signer" size=40 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Contact Name:</b>
    <TD><input name="conct_name" size=40 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Company Name:</b>
    <TD><input name="comp_name" size=40 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Address:</b>
    <TD><input name="address" size=40 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>City:</b>
    <TD><input name="city" size=25>

<font size=-1><b>State:<b> <input name="state" size=8>

<font size=-1><b>Zip:</b> <input name="zip" size=10 align="right"></font></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Phone Number:</b>
    <TD><input name="phone_num" size=22>

<font size=-1><b>Fax:</b><input name="fax" size=20 align="right"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>Compliance Officer:</b>
    <TD><input name="comp_off" size=40 align="right"></td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td><font size=-1><b>E-mail:</b>
    <TD><input name="email" size=40 align="right"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>
</html>

As you can see, fields are aligned and margins are even, BUT only there where it is only one field in a line. You can't align lines where there are several fields, because different users have different font settings (font itself and its size) and what looks like aligned and even on your screen, may appear to look different on another.

Maybe you should place every field on a separate line? And then playing with align properties and sizes you can make all the margins even.
