Vertical Alignment Form/Label

Hello

I am relatively new to CSS and I am struggling to solve this simple problem.

In the attached example, there is a form on the left. I can't get the labels to be vertically aligned with the inputs. The labels are all a bit above the baseline of the text in the inputs (Chrome and IE8). (cf image attached "mismatch")

I am sure it must be simple to fix but I tried all sort of combinations of vertical-aligns on the different div/labels without success.

Thanks in advance
Charles

Add to the label span css the following:
padding-top:1px;

This will do it
