I believe that is what i do have:

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
   
        <asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server">
        </asp:Login>
   
    </div>
    </form>
</body>

Looks okay to me.  Are you sure the rest of the tags are well formed - that is, there aren't any syntax errors on the page?  Also, make sure the form tag's runat has matched quotes around the server value.

yes ... not sure exactly what i had wrong.  It must have been the tags; I removed the login and put it back in and it is working.

Wondering why the control is so tiny though

Also, ensure you are using only one form tag.

<body>
<form...>
</form>
</body>

Not:

<body>
<form...>
<form...></form>
</form>
</body>

-or-

<body>
<form...>
</form>
<form...>
</form>
</body>

HTH,
