    Default Triangle issues

    Well, recently I chose to start working on Java. So I bought this book and now, on one of the exercises it wants me to make an isosceles triangle that has spaces in between each star ( * ). I would type it out but it seems that the forum wont allow me to put the example in proper format.

    Here is what I have so far.

    package testin;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Main {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            Scanner scr = new Scanner(System.in);
            int sideSize;
           System.out.print("Enter size of the equal " +
           "sides in an triangle:");
           sideSize = scr.nextInt();
           for (int row=0; row<sideSize; row++)
                  for (int col=1; col <=row; col++)
                         if ((col == 1) || (col == row))
                         System.out.print(" ");
           for ( int col=1; col<sideSize; col++)
           System.out.print(" ");
