The span technique is limited especially when the legend needs to be positioned to the left and inputs to the right, I believe this can't be done. Using absolute positioning in most cases isn't suitable as it's taken out of the normal flow of the document. I've given up on trying to achieve this. At the end of the day legends are extremely limited in terms of styling.

Stick with the span technique, using display block, relative/absolute
positioning etc you should be able to achieve any layout required
