If i have a html table with id of mytable and inside of this table i have a table cell with class colstyle 2. In this table cell I have 2 spans.
One span has a class of span1class and the other one has a class of span2class

If I use this css statement it positions both of my spans on the top right

        #mytable td.colstyle2 span {
            position: absolute;
            top: 1px;
            right: 1px;
        }

How would my statement look if I only want the statement to apply to the span with class span1class ?

Hi here is a fiddle of my example.

http://jsfiddle.net/r2db13tg/

Notice how the span containing "Howdy"  and the span containing "Hello" are both being put on the top right.

I only want the span with class Peach containing "Hello"  to be put on the top right.

My desired result should look like this:

desired result
So in my fiddle. This span with and it's hyperlink are the only thing I want put on the top right corner:

                                    <a href="http://www.google.com">
                                        <span title="My Second Span" class="PeachClass" id="TestSpan2">
                                            Hello
                                        </span>
                                    </a>
