position image and text using css

Hi

I have the following code that apart from the CSS cannot be changed (the download div is created by a CMS system) and I want to get the download type images in the grey boxes but they keep going behind.

Also I would like the boxes to be the same height so if one took up 2-3 lines the other would also match.

<style>

#download {
	margin: 2em 0 0 0;
	padding: 0 0 0 0;
	clear: both;
	background: #fbfbfb;
	border: solid 1px #ccc;
	border-top-left-radius: 5px;
	border-top-right-radius: 5px;
	border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
	border-bottom-right-radius: 5px;
}

#download h2 {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0.3em 1em;
	font-size: 100%;
	color: #fff;
	position: relative;/*IE6*/	
    background-color:#06377B; 
	border-top-left-radius: 5px;
	border-top-right-radius: 5px;
    height:24px;  
    padding: 9px 0 0 6px;
	
}

#download .pairwrap {
	margin: 0 0 0 0;
	overflow: hidden;
	clear: both;
	border-bottom:1px solid #f0f0f0;
	position:relative;
	background:#f0f0f0;
}

#download .pairwrap div {
	padding: 0px;
	float: left;
	width: 200px;
	display: inline;
	overflow: hidden;
	position: relative;
	z-index:-1;
}

#download .pairwrap div.even {
	padding: 5px;
	margin-left:40px;
	background:#fff;
	position: relative;
	z-index:0;
}

#download .pairwrap div.odd {
	padding: 5px;
	margin-left:40px;
	background:#fff;
	position: relative;
	z-index:0;
}

#download a {
	text-decoration: none;
	border-left:#ff6600;
	z-index:1;
}

#download a:hover {
	text-decoration: underline;
}

#download .pairwrap div img {
	position: absolute;
	left:-2px;
	z-index:1;
}

#download .pairwrap div.mediatext {
	float: none;
	display: block;
	width: auto;
	margin: 0 0 0 0px;
	z-index:1;
}

</style>
<div id="download">
  <h2>Downloads</h2>
  <div class="pairwrap">
    <div class="odd"> <img src="pdficon.gif" alt="" /> <a href="?id=9141" rel="external">Catering safety</a> </div>
    <div class="even"> <img src="pdficon.gif" alt="" /> <a href="?id=4774" rel="external">Violence at work</a> </div>
  </div>  <div class="pairwrap">
    <div class="odd"> <img src="pdficon.gif" alt="" /> <a href="?id=9141" rel="external">Catering safety</a> </div>
    <div class="even"> <img src="pdficon.gif" alt="" /> <a href="?id=4774" rel="external">Violence at work</a> </div>
  </div>
</div>

no, image needs to go in the darker box on the left of each text

like this: downloads
0

NeilT looking at the code would you not split the image and the text into two different divs instead of the one?

For example:

<div id="container">
<div class="item">
<div class="image"><img src="" /></div><div class="title">Catering...</div>
</div>
</div>

If done this way the image should (if the css is correct) have a darker background. Hope this helps

the html code cannot be changed, only the css can unfortunately as the code is output from a part of the cms we do not have access to (we can overwride the CSS though

Is this what you are looking for?

If so what I did was I removed the float:left from the #download .pairwrap div{ } style and set left to -30px in the #download .pairwrap div img{} style. Hope this helps
