Welcome to the JavaRanch, Matt!

Sorry, you're going to have to use CSS. JSF was designed on the basis that it shouldn't have to duplicate what other systems already did better, and in the matter of formatting displays, "better" is CSS. So there is extensive CSS support in JSF, but very little in the way of brute-force display configuration.

If you do not want to use a Style css file you could use the filer style and write wharever you want to. But that not a good pratice.
