Text alignment in form label

I am an amateur at CSS.  There is a contact form at www.mauivacationrental.com/contact.htm with form field labels.  I thought I established a right-alignment for those labels in styling on that page, but "City" and "Country" labels appear to be left-aligned.  Please advise.

Your issue is you have your input inside a P tag and the input you have inline style for margin-left.  Take out the margin left and you are kind of good.

<input type="text" class="fullfld" style="margin-left:47px; margin-right:60px" maxlength="30" name="City">

Open in new window



Using a <label>something</label><input name=..> would be better though.

Thanks to you both.   When there are nested components, it's difficult for me to keep track of which element is being styled.  It worked to remove of the left margin from "fullfld", which created a gap between the label and the text field, and insert a left margin in the required "formlabel" elements so that things line up.

Try and avoid styling inline and use css instead.  Otherwise when you try and style using css, the inline takes precedent.
