HTML Form Input Has Carriage Return On iPad Safari

I have a standard HTML web application that has a form input element.  I am not sure why, but the HTML is rendered differently between Safari on the Windows platform and Safari on the iPad/iPhone.

When viewing the page in Chrome, Safari or Firefox on the Windows platform, the page renders as expected.  However, when I look at the same page on the iPhone or iPad, there is a carriage return between the field label and form element.  I don't believe it is due to the page dimensions or fixed width settings.  Does anyone have any suggestions for troubleshooting browser compatibility differences between Safari on the Windows machine and Safari on the iPhone?

    I found my own solution.  This issue was introduced due to the screen resolution of the monitor.
