Hi,

I am working on a website for someone and i am trying to float the search elements left, or right, not really worried right now, but when i do it fails to appear correct in IE7. I thought i had cleared the floats but obviously either in the wrong place or totally wrong.

As it stands i have changed them by removing both float styles and just have them display:inline blocks, however this still didnt work.

Can anyone shine any light on the following address:

The problem appears to be that there just isn't enough room for them side-by-side and I suspect it has something to do with the word "SEARCH" being in a text input element. IE has it's own algorithm for determining the automatic width of an input element. Try giving the one with "SEARCH" in it a fixed width with no left or right padding, centered, and see if that helps.
