How to edit the style of the "Edit" column in a .NET gridview

Hi all,

I have created a GridView on a .NET 2.0 (I know, I know...) web page that has an Edit command.  The Edit command, obviously, opens up the column with the "Update" and "Cancel" link buttons.  

The style that our office's web site uses makes the two link buttons appear really close together.  Does anyone know what sort of command/style I can use to either space them apart more or put a "|" between the two link buttons or what have you?  

Thanks,
Jamie
