Hi
We are designing an internet site that let's users query data and maintain it. One of the questions that has come up is how do you justify text/numbers in input boxes. One of our business people believes that all numeric values should be right justified in the input boxes. Personally, I believe that everything should be left justified in the input boxes. Does anyone have any opinions on this matter or places on the web that have suggestions for these types of issues?
Thanks

Most people leave everything to the default which is left justified. If I am working with numbers on a form with totals and stuff with fixed decimals, then I might use right justified.
I would say, do what looks the best. For links online, have no clue where to look. Maybe a search on google.
