    Floating boxes on the right side

    Hello there Codingforums
    I'm currently creating a website, which has a centered box with text and and such.
    Now, i also want a box floating on the right, with a little gap from my main box.
    I'll leave a picture here, where the red box i drew is the floating box i want to make.
    (this forum resizes my picture, so you can't see the box, i'll leave the direct link here)

    Btw. the blue box is just a censored box i didn't want on the picture.

    So my question for you is, how do i make a floating box like that?
    I've tried a couple of times with different methods.
    in the CSS, i've made a box and gave it the property float:right;
    But when i do that, it just turns out like this

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    A little trick:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <title>Title of the document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    	width: 1000px;
    	height: 1000px;
    	outline:1px solid red;
    	height: 100%;
    	width: 400px;
    	position:absolute; /*   THIS IS THE TRICK   */
    	left: 25%;         /*   THIS IS THE TRICK... AND NOT MARGIN AUTO   */
    	outline:1px solid green;
    	width: 200px;
    	height: 200px;
    	outline:1px solid blue;
    <div id="container">
    	<div id="center"></div>
    	<div id="right"></div>
