I have the following html (see below) and the result is not what I am looking for. The #nav and #search are below the #logo and not next to #logo.

Please see pic for what I am looking for.
final result

 
 <div id="header">
        <div id="logo"></div>
        <div id="search">search</div>
        <div id="nav">
            <ul>
                <il><a href="">home</a></il>
                <il><a href="">home</a></il>
                <il><a href="">home</a></il>
                <il><a href="">home</a></il>
                <il><a href="">home</a></il>
            </ul>
        </div>
    </div>

Open in new window


and css code:
#logo {
	width: 280px;
	height: 100px;
	background-image:url(images/logo.jpg)
}
#search {
	float:right;}

Try adding float:left to the logo.  The EOL at the end of the logo div forces the rest of the content to start on the next line.

If that does not solve it then post a link to the page so we can do diagnostics.

It works. But now I have #nav and #search. I'd like #search to be on top and #nav at the bottom. Thx

So I guess you are assuming that I can see across the internet into you mind and determine what it looks like without a link or any other hint.  Nope, I do not have telepathic capabilities.  I need specifics.
