Yet, using <PRE> is the solution.  Try formatting your input like

<FORM ...>
Client:       <INPUT NAME=client SIZE=40>
Entry Date:   <INPUT NAME=entry_date SIZE=40>
Notes:        <INPUT NAME=notes SIZE=40>

At least it works for me with Mosaic 2.4.

Note that if the <INPUT ...> tags get uncomfortably long you can break
them into multiple lines, e.g.
