Sitting Divs Beside Each Other

How do you set divs side by side? My current CSS:

[CODE]#header1 {
position: absolute;
left: 0px;
width: 51%;
height: 150px;
margin-right: 5px;
background-image: url(/images/misc/possible_rebirth_banner_copy.jpg);
}

#header2 {
width: 49%;
height: 150px;
background-image: none;[/CODE]

And my current web page code:

[code=php]<div id=”header1″></div>

<div id=”header2″>

<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/misc/houses.gif” border=”0″ width=”95″ height=”32″ alt=”Houses” onMouseOver=”houses1();” onMouseOut=”houses2();”>

<br> <br>

<?php include(“../includes/house_table.html”); ?>

</div>

</div>[/code]

The problem is header2 is sitting directly under header1. I need header2 to be on header1’s right side.

@Declan1991Jun 28.2008 — Maybe:#header1 {
float:left;
width: 51%;
height: 150px;
margin-right: 5px;
background-image: url(/images/misc/possible_rebirth_banner_copy.jpg);
}

#header2 {
width: 49%;
height: 150px;
background-image: none;
}

@Joseph_WitchardauthorJun 29.2008 — Isn't float only used for images?

@CentauriJun 29.2008 — Any element can be floated.

@Joseph_WitchardauthorJun 29.2008 — Well, it's a little bit better, but not much. http://www.uhrebirth.com/test/test.php You can now see the image that reads "Houses," but it's now sitting under the header1 div instead of beside it liked I had hoped. If you have Aardvark for Firefox, you can see that the div is still not where it's supposed to be.

More help would be greatly appreciated:o

@CentauriJun 29.2008 — You float both the divs, and reduce the width of one of them to allow for the margin between them :[CODE]#header1 {
float: left;
width: [COLOR="Red"]50%[/COLOR];
height: 150px;
margin-right: 5px;
background-image: url(/images/misc/possible_rebirth_banner_copy.jpg);
}

#header2 {
width: 49%;
height: 150px;
background-image: none;
[COLOR="Red"]float: left;[/COLOR]
}[/CODE]
