I want to align Facebook and Google plus one buttons horizontally.

The code I've written is as below. The buttons align in Chrome and Firebox but in IE they are split into two lines.

How do I align them using CSS and without using tables so that the code works in IE as well?

<div id="shares">
<span><script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script><fb:like href="http://www.example.com" show_faces="false" width="300" font="lucida grande"></fb:like></span>
<span><g:plusone size="medium" annotation="inline" width="300" href="http://www.example.com"></g:plusone></span>
<script type="text/javascript">
  (function() {
    var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
    po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
  })();
</script>
</div>

It works. For anyone else who is interested the new code is as below: Hope this is right, easynow111?
<div id="shares">
<span class="facebook" style="height:30px;vertical-align:middle;"><script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script><fb:like href="http://www.example.com" show_faces="false" width="400" font="lucida grande"></fb:like></span>
<span class="google" style="height:30px;vertical-align:middle;"><g:plusone size="medium" annotation="inline" width="300" href="http://www.example.com"></g:plusone></span>
<script type="text/javascript">
  (function() {
    var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
    po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
  })();
</script>
