How to style header element so that logo is fixed at the left and login status fixed at the right

I need to do something similar to what Experts Exchange has done with its header.  My logo is floated to the left of the header and the profile link is fixed at the right of the same element.

I'm including my HTML and CSS for the elements involved in this.  The element that I need to fix in the upper right of the header element is in the div called MPLoginView.  I've tried floating the logo left and MPLoginView right but this doesn't seem to work.  Can someone help explain how I should do this?  Thanks!

HTML
        <div id ="PageWrapper">
            <header>
                <div class="MPLogo">LOGO IMAGE GOES HERE</div>
                <div class="MPLoginView">
                    <asp:LoginView runat="server">
                        <AnonymousTemplate>
                            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink2" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/Register.aspx">Register</asp:HyperLink>
                            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/Login.aspx">Login</asp:HyperLink>
                        </AnonymousTemplate>
                        <LoggedInTemplate>
                            Logged in as <asp:LoginName runat="server" /> | <asp:LoginStatus runat="server" />
                        </LoggedInTemplate>
                    </asp:LoginView>
                </div>
            </header>
            ...
       </div>

this should do it:

.MPLoginView{
    float: right;  
}

Unfortunately it doesn't (I mentioned that I tried that in the original post).  I thought it should work too but it positions .MPLoginView right next to the logo rather than to the right of the header element (see attached screenshot).

this is because the header does not "spread" to the page width...


header{
    display:inline-block;
    width: 100%;
}
