There are lots of spaces(nbsp) in line 3

i dont want to hardcode it everywhere . i want to keep it as a separate model so that we can use it elsewhere??

anybody with ideas?

It depends on why you need the spaces. If they are for presentation, you could use css instead of  . If it is part of the text name, you could import it in a JSP (if it is a dynamic page) or write it out using JavaScript if not.
