I want to have a multiline textbox on the left and a text field on the right, beside it. On the baseline.

<table><tr><td valign=bottom>
<multilinetextbox goes here>
</td><td> Text: <textbox goes here>

Can that be done with styles without using a table?

You can use divs just like table cells - just float one. E.G.

<div style="float:left;">
multi<br />
line<br />
textbox<br />
here<br />
<div style="padding-top:57px;">
Text at baseline

This assumes you want the "baseline" text at the bottom of the second div. If so, just adjust the padding appropriate to the height of your multiline textbox. If not, just remove the style altogether.

Is that what you're going for?
