Having trouble styling radio buttons and check boxes

Posted 20 March 2012 - 08:22 AM

Hi,
I am having trouble styling the radio buttons and check boxes on this form.
I want to reduce the gap between the label Sex and the radio buttons so that
the buttons sit underneath 'T' in IT, also wish to reduce the gaps between the buttons
and the words Male and Female.
I wish to do the same for the check boxes.
Would be very grateful for your help.

exact positioning like that would require that the select box would be rendered the same way in every browser on every operating system, which I doubt.

I believe you could just through a position: relative on them and adjust them that way, but I would definitely target the checkbox and radio button specifically so you don't mess up your other inputs.
