Thanks gurvinder372. It worked.

But if I enhance the situation like:

In a div I have 4 spans, in which two spans should be aligned horizontally and two vertically, this fails like

<div>
  <span style="padding-right:2px;">column1</span>
  <span>column2</span>
  <span style="padding-right:2px;">column3</span>
  <span>column4</span>
</div>

Can it be possible to have column 3 display under coulmn 1 and coulmn 4 under coulmn 2.

Thanks and appreciated

Yes I would change it like this:

<div>
  <span style="padding-right:2px;">column1</span>
  <span>column2</span><br />
  <span style="padding-right:2px;">column3</span>
  <span>column4</span>
</div>

The spans will keep appending to the "row" that they are in.  Once you insert a <br /> then it will start a new "row" for you to put more <span>'s in.
