floating image after text even when the text wraps

Hi,

I need an image to float right of a headline even when the text in the headline wraps onto another line.

<div style="width:100px">
<h3 style="float: left">headline text</h3>
<span stlye="float:left">background image placeholder</span>
</div>

At the moment I am having issues if the text wraps onto a new line the image no longer sits to the right of the text but instead sits underneath it. If the text is in one line it looks fine.

Thanks


Attached is a schematic example of what I need

Hi Al4ddin2, you can try setting the H3 to a display: inline. Here's a pen I created to illustrate that idea.

Since you are setting the container to width:100px there is no room for the image to float next to the text. An inline element will take up as much room as it needs - in this case the whole 100px before wrapping.
To get them on the same line you need to give the H3 tag a set width that allows enough room for the image to fit into the remaining width of the container
