HTML Textbox to Clone

This code contains textbox input to specify product name and price. This input element is cloned for adding multiple product entries.

<DIV class="float-left col-heading">Item Name</DIV>
<DIV class="float-left col-heading">Item Price</DIV>

<input type="button" name="add_item" value="Add More" onClick="addMore();" />
<input type="button" name="del_item" value="Delete" onClick="deleteRow();" />
