In the spirit of sharing, I thought I'd let you all in on the Arial Unicode Right-To-Left Mark character that can be used in forms to add blank row between Help Text and the form value.

As per the image below:

  1. begin by selecting and copying the U+200F character from the Arial set in the Windows Character Map application.
  2. Now within your form, enter the Help Text as you normally would, then with the cursor on at the end of the text, press Shift + Enter to force a carriage return and paste (Crtl + V) the Unicode character you copied earlier.

This creates a much nicer visual as the value(s) are no longer jammed right up against the Help Text.
