had had similar results before. First to guarantee that it is the far right I use float:right. However, you have to make sure that it is not in a div or section that isn't to the far right. Basically I had float:right for my login buttons, but they were within a div, and that div was not set to float:right, so it ended up to the right of my description in the header, the header was set to 60% width, so to the right of that was near the middle and that div was only about 15%, so even though I had float:right for the button is was to 75%, so I made the parent div take up 40% and now my buttons are to the very right of all screen resolutions.

Hope that helps.

Two things:
  • As you have not shown us what you've already done, we cant really advise you on how it's wrong.
  • Having two class attributes on a single element is not valid. Apply multiple classes in a single attribute using space delimiters.
