CSS/HTML Text On Same Line Question

I am new to CSS and something is driving me crazy.
I was asked to remove a font tag and change it to CSS.

original code:
<p><font> color="#008080">Submitted By: /font> <i>Your Name</i></p>

Change To CSS:
p {color:#008080;}
<p> Submitted by: </p> <i>Dawn O'Shaughnessy</i>

The Submitted By and my name should be 2 different colors--Got that part!!!

However, I cannot get my name to appear on the same line as Submitted By.
Shows Up Like This? Why?? Many Thanks! Dawn

<p> is a block level element that occupies the entire width of the page. So you need to shorten the length by adding 'width:100px' or whatever and then 'float:left' which will allow your name to start to the right.

Try this,

[HTML]p {
color: #008080;
}
em {
color: #FF00CC;
}
