ASP.Net Checkboxes on iPad

Hi,

I have an ASP.Net page with several CheckBoxes (not a CheckBoxList) that I have formatted to have the Check (Input) to the right of the Label using CSS:

.WizardCheckBox input 
{ 
    float:right; 
}
.WizardCheckBox td 
{ 
    padding-left: 20px; 
}

Open in new window


This renders as expected in pretty much all browsers, with the exception of the iPad. The iPad for some reason staggers the Checks as illustrated below.

Desired Layout:
User generated image
Layout on iPad:
User generated image
I have looked at the html produced in each case and it seems that on the iPad none of the <input> tags are closed, which I presume results in some kind of nesting, which could, perhaps, explain this behaviour?

Is this something anyone else has experienced and are there any workarounds you can suggest?

Cheers

Simon

Does this help?
.WizardCheckBox input 
{ 
    float:right; 
    position: absolute;
}

Also you can take a look at User Agent Switcher addon for Firefox. Will help you in debugging.

Thank you for the suggestion, but adding 'position: absolute' changes the layout in the browsers where it was previously working:

The parent container of this checkboxes is a Wizard, itself held in a div.

A CheckBoxList renders as a table and I had found it more difficult for me to style to look as above. However - I have just had another go and can got the look I was after, in IE at least, I will test in other browsers and on iPad and if that works I will mark your post as the answer.

Cheers
Can you replace the <p> tag with <div width="100px"> and check if that helps?
using a checkboxlist worked, thanks.
