Separating Buttons On The Action Bar

I recently had a requirement to separate action buttons on a form. The user
wanted one action button to be on the left side and the other to be on the
right. I considered getting rid of my action buttons and just putting the
buttons directly on the form, but this would have been unfeasible since there
are many forms in the database. Then, I hit upon a different idea which works

I added a new action button in between the two existing buttons. Within this
new button, I placed the following HTML in the title:

[&LTtd width=87%></td>]

Since the action bar is converted into an html table on the web, the above HTML
just adds another cell to the table and occupies 87% of the screen. The end
result is that the action buttons are pushed to the left and right side of the
screen. Of course, you may have to adjust the width setting to get the buttons
to align how you want them to.
