hi experts

This is  my code in html

 <div align="center">
                                                &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
                  &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
                  &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
                  &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
                  &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

<input type="button" value="submit"/>
</div>

In the above code is there any way i can replace all those "&nbsp;" with a single sign or character.
thanks

Are you just trying to make that button be farther over to the right?

How about...


<div style="text-align: center;">
    <input type="button" value="submit" style="margin-left: 15em;" />
</div>

... or some other margin-left that might work better?

For that matter, setting text-align: center;  when the <div> has no particular width is a little odd in itself.

yeah ... just use a transparent gif inside an <img> tag, for which you specify the widht desired.

Alternatively...

<div style="padding-left: 15em;">
    <input type="button" value="submit" />
</div>

By "one after the other" I assume you mean...

                   [ Button ] [ Button ]

.. and not
                   [ Button ]
                   [ Button ]


For the former...

<div style="text-align: center; padding-left: 15em;">
    <html:button  property="" styleClass="button" onclick="submitmeAction('editcart');" value="Edit Cart" />
    <html:button  property="" styleClass="button" onclick="submitmeAction('continueshopping');" value="Continue Shopping" style="margin-left: 1em;" />
</div>

... will work fine.

Basically wherever you want space, add margin or padding around that element.  You should almost never have to explicitly code spacing into HTML.  (There are still some places that a <br /> tag is appropriate, but I think I've used about three <br /> tags total in the last, say, five months.  The stylesheet, or inline styles in this case, can almost always describe the spacing you want.)

<table width="100%">
      <tr>
            <td align="right">
                  <input type="submit" value="button1" />
                  <input type="submit" value="button2" />
            </td>
      </tr>
</table>

the above code will always allign to the right. If you use padding or spacing by fixed amounts, you will be affected by resizes of the window.

That's true, my code won't actually right-align, it will just push over to the right.  You can use...

<div style="width: 100%; text-align: right;">
               <input type="submit" value="button1" />
               <input type="submit" value="button2" />
</div>

... to actually align the buttons to the right.

Or, if you prefer,
               <input type="submit" value="button2" style="float: right;" />
               <input type="submit" value="button1" style="float: right;" />



Fight the urge to fall back on table layouts with everything you've got!  (-:
