How to place widget in header

I thought I had the header widget positioned, but when i tested it in Firefox, it falls out of the layout container as seen on my website at http://frugalmommytoday.com
I put it in absolute position, but it still doesn't work. How can I get the widget area to stay inside the layout container?

How did you define it? ie what did you use and where did you put it.

I added:

#my_new_widget_area {border: none;
position: absolute;
right: 130px;
top: 0;
width: 200px;
text-align: center;
color: #8A5C2E;
font-family: 'Arial Black', Gadget, sans-serif;

STB, I followed the instructions under the "Add New Widget Areas" in ATO. :-)
I added the div id for styling purposes.
But the widget is automatically postioned in the center bottom of the header area and I can float it right, but can't get it to the top. I even tried using the following:
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=My new widget area&cells=1&align=3'); ?>
to the "Style and Edit Header Area" but the align 3 didn't make a difference (according to the new widget area section, align 3 positions it to the top right. Am I doing something wrong?

I just wanted to mention that the align function for new widget areas aligns the contents of the area not the area itself. You generally create a widget area or areas and then you use CSS to style/position the widgets that go in them.

frugalmommytoday: I had the same problem and just managed to solve it. What worked for me was adding a simple float:left to the logoareas CSS, and something similar but float:right to the new widget area, see example below.

table#logoarea {
float: left;
clear: none;
width: 300px;

Hope that might help!
