HTML Question

Float: right; not floating all the way

I'm trying to make a simple footer box with some text on the left and some text on the right however when I set the right bit of text to

float: right;
it only goes about 60% of the way to the right.

Apologies if this is super simple but I've been looking at it forever and just can't get it.

Here's my CSS and HTML code for reference. (ignore the empty classes, they're for later)


@import url(,700,300);

html {
font-family: 'Oswald', sans-serif;
font-weight: 300;
font-size: 20px;
background-image: url('images/backgrounds/wallpaper.jpg');
background-size: 100%;
background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;
color: RGBA(255,255,255,0.6);

body {
width: 70%;
margin: auto;
background-color: RGBA(200,200,200,0.4);
border-width: 1px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #FFFFFF;
border-top-left-radius: 10px;
border-top-right-radius: 10px;
padding-bottom: 20px;
padding-top: 10px;
border-radius: 6px;

div {

width: 95%;
margin: auto;
background-color: RGBA(50,50,50,0.95);


.alignleft {float: left;}

.alignright {float: right;}

.header {

border-top-left-radius: 10px;
border-top-right-radius: 10px;


.main {



margin: auto;
border-bottom-left-radius: 10px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 10px;
padding-top: 10px;
padding-bottom: 5px;
padding-left: 15px;
padding-right: 15px;


.footerText {

font-size: 13px;
color: RGBA(255,255,255,0.3);
width: 350px;
