    Unhappy Text and image in line

    I don't know how I am struggling with this but apparently I am. I want to display a piece of text inline with an image and have them vertically aligned. However, I am somehow finding this difficult. This is the HTML.
    Code:
    <div style="position: relative; margin:0; padding:0; width:800px; display:inline; ">
    Gest allows you to use mouse gestures with Windows Explorer. To perform a mouse gestures hold down the right mouse button and move it. The ways in which you move the mouse before you release the button determines what action Gest will perform. 
    </div>
    <img src="myimage.png" style="display:inline; position: relative; float: right; vertical-align: middle;">
    Why is this not working??
    Thanks in advance.

    What are the dimension of that image? Is there any width set to the container of the two elements? Can we have a link to your page?

    Code:
    <div>
    <img src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7803192/bambi4/Gest/Gest.png" style=" float: right;">

    That's how the float works. If you need to keep your original markup intact, you'd need something like
    Code:
    <div style="float: left; width: 860px;">
