I have a div block of text that is positioned relative and I want text contained in the same high-level div container to wrap such that it won't overlay the relative block.  How can I do this?  Is it possible?

It looks like I just needed to use float:right and have the block defined in the correct place (above the text that needs to wrap).  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
