I've got an issue with the following code which is not lining up the images / removal links as I'm after, hoping some of you gurus can easily assist.

I'm after a framed box container, then each image will also have a border "frame" with the removal link in the top right hand corner, ideally later ill alter it for an image to look better as in the image below:

I'm trying to get something like this:
But I'm actually getting this:
Here is my current code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
#imageGalleryContainer {
	position: relative;
	border: 1px solid #CCC;
	padding: 4px;
	position: relative;
#imageGalleryContainer .singleImageContainer {
	border: 1px solid #CCC;
	padding: 4px;
	float: left;
	position: relative;
	margin-right: 6px;
.singleImageContainer a.remove_field {
	border: 1px solid #ff6600;
	padding: 0px;
	margin: 0px;
	position: relative;
	top: 10px;
	right: 10px;
	z-index: 200;
.singleImageContainer img.singleImageThumbnail {
	border: 1px solid #00ff00;
	padding: 2px;
	margin: 0px;
	position: relative;
	top: 0px;
	left: 0px;
	z-index: 100;


    <div id="imageGalleryContainer">
      <div class="singleImageContainer">
        <a class="remove_field" id="o_19aglfoja1nlqjo51vcu1q8993jf.jpg" href="#">Remove</a>
