Hi,
Please see the attached jpg file.  The small div on the left is a fixed size image, 42X40,.  the larger div on the right will contain text that could grow longer if needed.  the space between the 2 div area will be 10px.

I tried putting a outer div to enclose these 2 div but still doesn't work right.  Appreciate some help here.   Because it's Intranet, I'm not able to provide url here.

Hi, I don't need borders.  The box is intended to show as div area.  What is your 2nd example code for?

I currently uses the same as your 1st example.  However, I have style sheet classes as follow.
.evnts-image {
    width:42px;
    margin-right: 10px; float: left;
}
.events-text {
    margin-left:52px;
    float:right;

}


         <div>
            <div class="evnts-image">
               <img src="/PublishingImages/Portal/Calendar%20icons/img1.png" alt=""/>
            </div>
            <div class="events-text">
               <strong>This is a title</strong><br/> Some text about this event that should be able to grow. </div>
         </div>

The border is so you can see the divs.
There is only one code sample - the HTML and the CSS - look at the fiddle
