Pardon the basic question, but I haven't done any CSS in over a year!!

What is the best way to make it so that I can nudge text up along side a Heading?

I would like something similar to this...
Inbox Your have 87 messages, with a limit of 100. (What's this?)
I am thinking you have to make the Heading block: inline; but am unsure...

Also, if I can make it so the Heading is left-aligned in the containing block and the other text is right-aligned that would be even better!
