I am trying to display text on the same line that has 2 different types of alignment (see image below).  I want to display a word that is displayed in the center of the page and on the same line display a word that is right aligned.  Is this possible to do?  If so what is the style that I would use?

Example of desired text display

This is what I do, CSS-wise (adjust the margin-bottom value based on the text size and other layout):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
<title>Test Page</title>
<style type="text/css">
div.style1 { text-align: center; margin-bottom: -20px}
div.style2 { text-align: right; }
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div class="style1">center</div><div class="style2">right</div>

</body>

</html>

Thanks, this works.  I was doing what you suggested except I was missing the margin-bottom part.
