horribly noob question but I just need to know...how do I align my widgets?

I'm new to any kind of CSS/html stuff but am trying to learn by customizing tumblr themes. I have a tumblr I'm working on with a friend in Australia, and I added fun little time zone widgets so people could see the time difference between us. I'd just like them to line up; New York on the left; Melbourne on the right. Going into the code, I tried using a float left, but that just moves over the Sabrina/New York part, not the time incrementer. I'm sure this is massively easy; help me!

The link to the tumblr in question is in my profile.

Why not put them in a table?

table
tr
td
"widget1code"
/td
td
"widget2code"
/td
/tr
/table

You'll need to put brackets around each line. I can't figure out how to make it play nice in this comment box.

#mainNav {
  border-bottom: 2px solid #222222;
  border-top: 1px solid #222222;
  font-family: Cufon;
  /* margin-top: 20px; */
  padding: 15px;
}

#siteDescription {
  border-top: 1px solid #222222;
  color: #222222;
  font-family: Cufon;
  font-size: 13px;
  margin-bottom: -5px;
  margin-top: 20px;
  overflow: hidden;
  padding: 1em 0;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}
Add/change the bolded above and float the inner div's left and right. You can get rid of everything else on the inner divs. The padding for #siteDescription will take care of all that.

...the two inner divs of #siteDescription, that is.
