vertical adjustment of table cell contents

I have two table cells as shown:

<td align="right" valign="top">Sample Label</td>
<td valign="top">....nested tables in here....</td>

Open in new window


The problem is that my Sample Label aligns too high relative to the other cell. When I change valign to "middle" it goes too low. Is there a style I can apply that will precisely bring it down 3 or 4 pixels? I've tried some things and nothing works.

Have you tried:

padding-top: 2px;

adjust to whatever looks good...

I should add, you need to keep it as valign="top" for the top padding to work as expected.

Good luck!
