You mean like this?


This example creates a table that is used to align two INPUT controls
and their
associated labels. Each label is associated explicitly with one of the
INPUT elements.

<FORM action="..." method="post">
    <TD><LABEL for="fname">First Name</LABEL>
    <TD><INPUT type="text" name="firstname" id="fname">
    <TD><LABEL for="lname">Last Name</LABEL>
    <TD><INPUT type="text" name="lastname" id="lname">
