Horizontal and Vertical Objects in a Header


Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I have a code that is almost complete, but I am still struggling with header elements, and I am in desperate need for help.


The site is using the box model and is responsive;

Header area is 980px in width, 275px in height.

A YouTube video is linked, occupies 60% of the left width and takes the full height (275px)


I am struggling with the remaining 40%, in which I want:

At its bottom, a horizontal link box: height 75px, width 40% of the window, with 'Try the Offer' text.

Above the horizontal link two h1 lines on top of each other. Top h1 reads: Experience a Unique Offer.

Below h1 reads: Try it First.

At the top right corner, vertical flags for language links (e.g. US, France, Germany, etc.), all floating to the right.


I tried many attempts, but all failed. I would appreciate your help. Below html and css code.

<title><?php // Use a default page title if one wasn't provided...
if (isset($page_title)) {
echo $page_title;
} else {
echo 'Select From Our Amazing Producs!';
<link rel = "stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/screen_layout_large.css" />
