Why is this image being bumped down to the bottom?

Look at the screenshot that I've got attached. You'll notice my right arrow is positioned below the black bar and I want it to be alongside it - parallel to the left arrow.

My stylesheet it is below. Where am I blowing it? I've been at this for more than a couple of hours now and I'm thinking this should be intuitive, but I'm missing something.

Thanks!

HTML:

<div id="scroll_container">
      <div id="scroll_caps_left"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps_right"></div>
</div>

CSS:

#scroll_container {
position:relative;
background-image:url(images/scroll_bar_patern.png);
background-repeat:repeat-x;
height:27px;
width:320px;
}

#scroll_caps
{
position:relative;
margin:auto;
width:250px;
height:27px;
background-color:#000000;
}

#scroll_caps_left {
position:absolute;
left:3px;
width:17px;
height:27px;
background-image:url(images/left_arrow.png);
background-repeat:none;
}

#scroll_caps_right {
position:absolute;
right:3px;
width:17px;
height:27px;
background-image:url(images/right_arrow.png);
background-repeat:none;
}

No screenshot. Would be better if you can provide a link so the page can be firebugged.

Nuts!

Here's the screenshot. I'll upload the page to a server so you can see the live version.

Try swapping the second two divs in your HTML

<div id="scroll_container">
      <div id="scroll_caps_left"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps_right"></div>
      <div id="scroll_caps"></div>
</div>

That worked! Can you tell me why it worked? What was I doing that was solved by your solution?
