Elements not floating next to one another, despite adequate space

Test page:
http://partnersdesign.net/test

Please click "Partners Design, Inc." at the top. The block with the gray, yellow, blue and green backgrounds should be aligning to the right of the red background. It looks like there is enough space. This was working previously, but I messed something up. I am having trouble seeing what is wrong, I would really appreciate another set of eyes.

HTML:

<ul id="nav2" class="nomobile">
			<li id="nav2bt1" class="nav2hl">ABOUT</li>
			<li id="nav2bt2">PARTNERS</li>
			<li id="nav2bt3">AWARDS</li>
			<li id="nav2bt4">STUDIO</li>
		</ul>

		<div id="contentarea1" class="contentarea">
			<div class="contentquotetag nomobile">01.<br />
				LAURETTA DIVES<br />
				Owner<br />
				<i>The Picture Desk</i></div>
			<div class="contentquote nomobile clearfix">
				<i>&ldquo;The branding has been extremely successful and, although it was created some years back, we have not felt the need to update it significantly, as the look is so classic.&rdquo;</i>
			</div>

			<img class="closebutton yesmobile" src="img/gr_x.png" border="0" />

			<h3>WHO BETTER TO START A GREAT PARTNERSHIP THAN IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHERS?</h3>

			<p>text...</p>
		</div>

CSS:

ul#nav2{float:left;margin:0;padding:12.6em 0 0 0;background-color:#c00;}
ul#nav2 li{display:block;width:116px;height:26px;margin:0;padding:4px 0 0 36px;font-family:'alternate_gothic_fs_no_2Rg',Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:1.3em;letter-spacing:1px;cursor:pointer;}

The 10em right margin for class contentarea is pushing contentarea1 away from the right side. (Line 222 of main.css) You need to either remove that margin or set contentarea1 to zero right margin.

main.css line 222 is where the problem is
div.contentarea {
  background-color: #CCCCCC;
  float: right;
  margin: 0 10em 0 0;
  width: 52em; /* <=== TOO MUCH HERE */
}

em is proportional so you might have changed something higher up the hierarchy which caused the div to be wider.
