How to add blank spaces between controls when adding them at run-time

The following code adds a bunch of image buttons to a placeholder.   The problem is that they all sit right next to each other.   What can I use to put a small space in between each image button.    
HtmlGenericControl lcBreak = new HtmlGenericControl("br");  <-- this puts each image button on a new line,  but i need them to be listed next to each other.
HtmlGenericControl lcBreak = new HtmlGenericControl("&nbsp;");    <---  this prints   " < > " inbetween each image button..   so that doesn't work either.  

I just want a few spaces in between each image button.   How can I do this?   Thanks


FileList = Directory.GetFiles(Server.MapPath("/images/icon1"));                                    

foreach( string i in FileList)
{

str_data = i.Remove(0,46);
      System.Web.UI.WebControls.ImageButton images  = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.ImageButton();
      .ID =str_data;
      images.ImageUrl = "http://www.web.com/images/" +
            CurrentLevels.SelectedValue + "/" +
            str_data;
      IconPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(images);
      HtmlGenericControl lcBreak = new HtmlGenericControl();
      IconPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(lcBreak);
}
