Hi,can people tell me their views on best practice in this
area, using JSF.

Eg, say I want this:

Label InputField
Label InputField

... ie 2 labels, 2 fields, vertically alligned, and with some space between the label and the field.

and this one:

Field Field

... ie 2 fields with a lot of space between them.

Please can we not get into a discussion of the purity of HTML/browsers! :-)

Finally, are there any examples on the web of UIs with many discrete fields on them (as opposed to logon/helloWorld and matrix data control), where I can look at how the design has been done.
