Seems like a pretty basic question, but that search—format control panel—doesn't seem to yield a useful result. Given, e.g., three fields in the CP, such as:

label A
[ A is short]

Label B
[B is also short]

Label Field C
[Me too!]

How can I consolidate lots of vertical space by making these things "float-y" (as I would think of them in CSS), so that if there was enough width, they would display as, e.g.,

Label A          Label B               Label Field C
[ A is short]    [B is also short]     [Me too!]

I see hints in various places in the docs that some kind of CP reformatting is possible, but am completely adrift as to how to go about it.

Got link into doc'n? Got example code?

TIA
