Stylesheet CSS Fieldset DIV Label Width?

Q. How do I change the width of several nested Labels in a fieldset?

This doesn't work:
        fieldset.managerList > div > label
        {
             width: 200px;
        }

<fieldset class="managerList">
    <div>
       <label>First Name:</label>
    </div>

    <div>
       <label>Last Name:</label>
    </div>

    <div>
       <label>Nick Name:</label>
    </div>
</fieldset>

The reason it isn't doing anything is that Label elements are inline elements rather than block, so width has no effect by default.

If you change the display attribute to inline-block then you should get the effect you want:
fieldset.managerList > div > label
{
     display: inline-block;
     width: 200px;
}
