How to prevent floated divs from wrapping in IE6 and above and mozilla.

Hi

Could someone help me stop the 'divCell' in code below from wrapping when the browser is narrowed?  I need the solution to work in IE6 and above and mozilla firefox. I have a minimum width set but even the slightest narrowing of the window causes the right div to wrap below the left one.

The reason why this happens is because of this line..
.divCell
{
    width:50%;

If I set the width to say 49.9% the div does not wrap but I really would like everything to be pixel perfect.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
<div id="divTable">
            <div class="divRow">
                <div class="divCell">
                asdfasdf
                </div>
                
                <div class="divCell">
                asdfasdf
                </div>
            </div>
        
        </div>
#divTable
{
    width:100%;
 
    background-color:Gray;
}
.divRow
{
    width:100%;
 
    background-color:Lime;
 
}
.divCell
{
    width:50%;
    float:left;
    background-color:Green;
}
