    Rollover linked images are stacking?

    Hello all - hoping someone can help. I'm editing this site for a client - totally under construction. I was adding rollover social media buttons at the bottom - should be easy enough, right - and I can't figure out why they are stacking on top of one another rather than sitting next to each other. There's plenty of room in the div so I'm stuck.

    IMT Bootcamp
    this is an example of how my code looks for each icon:

    <div id="footerright2">    <a id="facebook" href="#" title="facebook"><span>facebook</span></a>
        <a id="twitter" href="#" title="twitter"><span>twitter</span></a>
        <a id="youtube" href="#" title="youtube"><span>youtube</span></a>
        <a id="linkedin" href="#" title="linkedin"><span>linkedin</span></a>
        </div><!--close #footerleft-->
    CSS: (each is the same, just replace twitter, linkedin and youtube where 'facebook' is)
      display: block;
      width: 32px;
      height: 32px;
      background: url("images/facebook.png") no-repeat 0 0;
      background-position: 0 -32px;
    #facebook span
      position: absolute;
      top: -999em;

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    - Jenni

    You're using display: block; That means you're creating block-level elements, like divs and paragraphs are normally. Hence the stacking.

    If you want to do them vertically, you can either set display to inline-block (if IE7 and I believe IE8 aren't issues) or you can add float: left to the elements (be sure to clear them after.)
