Hi I am creating a webpage on dreamweaver- just learning some css (opposed to tables) and I am doing my first site and I am having a problem with image positioning.

I downloaded a template and thats how I got the basic page design set up (didnt create it all myself)

I would like to have text on the left hand side, and an image on the right hand side.

Would I do this by setting a position on the image? Or would I do that another way?

Here is an image of what I have now-  http://cellprophones.com/contact
I want to have the text on the left, and the image on the direct opposite side  (basically the opposite of what I have now). Any info is appreciated.

e.g.

style="float:right"

<img width="132" height="150" align="right" src="happy_phone.jpg"  style="float:right" />

Another way is to put the text in a DIV and set the image as the background, but move the text to the right.  This is the way that the W3C are asking web designers to move to because it separates page content from decoration, which also seems to please Google et al...

<div style="border:1px solid red; width:400px; min-height:150px; background:url(happy_phone.jpg) no-repeat top left; padding-left:150px;">
