Can this be done in CSS?

Hello

I have a form here:

<snip>

and can't quite get all the input fields exactly uniform, by which I mean the same length and beginning along the same (imaginary) left margin.

Is it possible to correct this using CSS?

Many thanks

sure you could do it using a couple divs and floating the relative to each other. OTOH (and I'm sure all the css folk will boo me here) drop it in a little table and be done with with it.

You could just change the layout. Instead of the way you have it arranged at the moment:

Topic: Re: aaaaaaaa
Name: (field)
E.mail: (field)
URL: (field)


you could do this:

Topic:
Re: aaaaaaaa
Name:
(field)
E-mail:
(field)
URL:
(field)


I think that would look fine, and it would all be left-aligned. No need for tables OR css.

This article at A List Apart has an example of exactly what you're after: [alistapart.com ].

Hello

Very many thanks to you all for your posts.

I am tempted to follow Purple_Martin's idea:

Topic:
Re: aaaaaaaa
Name:
(field)
E-mail:
(field)
URL:
(field)

On the other hand, because there is a fair amount of VBScript behind the form, it might be neater to read up on the great tutorial provided by j_anstice. Yes, it does seem to cover just what I was looking for. As oilman suggests, a couple divs and floating the relative should do the trick!

At least with the link I have something to go on now, and if it becomes a problem, I'll follow Purple_Martin's idea.

Many thanks again - I'm grateful!
