You can adjust this to suit your needs, but this is the basic styling:

<html>
<head>
<title>Hello</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
form  {
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size: 14px;
      color: #000000;
      }

input {
      width: 100px;
      }

label {
      float: left;
      width:100px;
      clear:all;
      padding-left:30px;
      }
   
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<label for="username">Username:</label> <input type="text" name="username"><br />
<label for="password">Password:</label> <input type="text" name="password"><br />
<div style="width:100px; height:30px; float:left; padding:0px;"></div><span style="width:100px;">HouseNo1:</span> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="HouseNo1"><br />
<div style="width:204px; height:30px; float:left; clear:left;"></div><span style="width:100px;">HouseNo2:</span> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="HouseNo2"><br />
</form>
</body>
</html>

thanks,i really panic, with the space.

Pls don't mind me asking something why put clear left; or clear=all;

and when put :

<div style="width:204px; height:30px; float:left; clear:left;"></div><span style="width:100px;">HouseNo2:</span>

if put div, then why span?

Very sorry me asking.

thanks

No problem at all...

With the div and the span - the clear:left just makes sure that the "HouseNo2" line sits below the "HouseNo1" line. It means that the left edge of the div must be against the page margin (Their can't be anything to the left of it, so it simply moves down one line) clear:all will also do this, but since there's nothing on the right of it, clear:left will take care of it.

Here's the same form with background colors added to help you see what's happening:

<html>
<head>
<title>Hello</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
form  {
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size: 14px;
      color: #000000;
      }

input {
      width: 100px;
      }

label {
      float: left;
      width:100px;
      padding-left:30px;
      background-color: #CCCCCC;
      }
   
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<label for="username">Username:</label> <input type="text" name="username"><br />
<label for="password">Password:</label> <input type="text" name="password"><br />
<div style="width:100px; height:30px; float:left; padding:0px; background-color: #CCCCCC;"></div><span style="width:100px; background-color: #CCCCCC;">HouseNo1:</span> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="HouseNo1"><br />
<div style="width:204px; height:30px; float:left; clear:all; background-color: #CCCCCC;"></div><span style="width:100px; background-color: #CCCCCC;">HouseNo2:</span> <input type="text" sixe="10" name="HouseNo2"><br />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Play around with adding and removing parts of the code to soo how each attribute affects its layout.

Please feel free to comment back :-)

Thanks,
