Put a   character inbetween.

HTML ignores extra white-spaces. The only way to force an extra white-space is to use the   character.

Create a 1px X 1px transparent gif in photoshop, insert it before username and password. Set the image's width to howmuch ever blank space you want. Note each   takes 6 bytes, if u want a lenghty blank space, transparent image method may be the solution.

Another method is put it in a table and set left-padding:

<table>
    <tr>
    <td  style="padding-left: 10px"> your form code here </td>
    </tr>
</table>

Hope it helps you,

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

You can also use the style-sheet command:
margin-left: 10%;
this might, however, not work in all browsers. I use this in a web developed for IE 5.5 or later.

georgemarian,
  i got one question to ask pls, pls . when u use this font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
the combination of the three fonts is used ??, is it

.thank you so much, and God bless.
seanpowellCommented:
Here's how the multiple font listing works:

If the user has Arial installed, it will be used.
If the user "does not" have Arial installed, but they "do" have Helevtica, it will be used.
If the user has "neither" font installed, the default sans-serif font for their OS will be displayed.
