I need to create something that looks like this
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Menu Item 1     | Image                                                                     |
| Menu Item 2     |                                                                                 |
| Menu Item 3     |                                                                                 |
| Menu Item 4     |                                                                                 |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can't figure out how to display the menu items and still have the image for the logo displayed to the right.

Create a container div, and then two child divs inside that container div.  The first div holds the content of the menu items, and the second div holds the image.  Then style the first child div to float left.

Here is a Fiddle Demo.

HTML
<div id="container">
  <div id="menu">
    <ul>
      <li>Item 1</li>
      <li>Item 2</li>
      <li>Item 3</li>
      <li>Item 4</li>
      <li>Item 5</li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <div id="image">
    <img src="http://findicons.com/files/icons/1995/web_application/48/smiley.png"> </div>
</div>

Open in new window


CSS
#menu {
  float:left;
}

Open in new window

You can also make the image a background-image of the menu item and position it right-center.

No Joy.  I copied your code and tried it.  The image appears below the menu!

<!DOCTYPE html><head>
	<title>Menu</title>
	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Fred.css">
</head>


<div id="container">
  <div id="menu">
    <ul>
      <li>Item 1</li>
      <li>Item 2</li>
      <li>Item 3</li>
      <li>Item 4</li>
      <li>Item 5</li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <div id="image">
    <img src="Images/Lang_Logo.jpg"> </div>
</div>

Open in new window


Fred.css
#menu {
  float:left;
}

Open in new window

There must be a conflict with other styles. What is the base URL of your Fred.css and Images/Lang_Logo.jpg files? Or better yet, what is the URL to your test file if it's available remotely?

Were you able to locate the conflicting CSS?  If not, can you set up a Fiddle Demo that demonstrates the problem?
