How can I emulate a 2-Col table with DIV using CSS?

I am blogging on blogger and I want to mix in images with my text.  Normally I would make a 2-column table, with the first cell containing my text, and the next cell containing my image.  I got set valign=top and all would be good.

<table>
  <tr>
     <td valign=top>
          yadayadayada
     </td>
     <td valign=top>
         <img src="yada.gif">
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>

When I do this on blogger, I get a huge gap above and blow the table.  I want the text to flow nicely and render the image in the righthand column, and I think that I can only do this with 2 div's and some position or flow attributes.  Can someone give the proper markup to achieve this without using tables?

Greetings kraffay,

<div>
<img src="yada.gif" style="float:right;margin:0 0 0 10px;"></img>
yadayadayada
<span style="clear:right;font-size:1px;">&nbsp;</span>
</div>

The span is used to clear the float incase the text is less than the height of the img

Steggs,

Thanks for the prompt response.  I tried this on my blog and can't seem to get the text to flow on the left side of the image (I was hoping for a 50/50 split).  You can see the results at:

My markup looks like this:

<div>This measly ....
<img src="http://media.doitbest.com/products/623917.gif" style="float:right;margin:0 0 0 10px;"></img>
<span style="clear:right;font-size:1px;">&nbsp;</span>
</div>

Any ideas?
