    Default Web formatting quirky

    Take a look at the attachement.

    I want to format a web page so that I have some text next to the input field, positioned to the right of the section.

    Like -
    " Size in Y: [ ]"

    The lower section (Y:) is where I start off -

    "Size in Y: [ ] "

    The top section (X:) is not where I want to go. I get a line return.

    "Size in X: "
    " [ ]"

    For the formating section "In -line Style". I have used - text-align: right; float: right;, but this produces a two line result. As for X:

    If I use - text-align: right; float: none; nothing happens.

    How do I get a right justified input field with the explanitory text next to it?

    Skip all the in-line formatting. For your field, clear the Row Label and select Above for the Row Label Position, that eliminates the left most empty box you show in your example.

    Check Freeform, go to Definition. Enter your explanitory text and insert the field. Now go to HTML Editor, highlight your text and click the Align Right toolbar icon.
