I am trying to centre a primary site logo in the middle of a responsive page and have float right contact details inline with the top of the logo but I'm not sure where to start with this. The following kind of outlines what I'm aiming at but obviously doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

My float right contact details

Have you actually tested?

That solution doesn't look (no, I didn't test) all that robust to me, especially attempting to center an absolute position element.

Try this, instead. Tested down to 300px (width of logo image). Below 300px width you could add another breakpoint.

<!DOCTYPE HTML>

  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
          content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
          content=
          "width=device-width; height=device-height; initial-scale=1">
 
    <title>

    </title>
    <style type="text/css">

    body {
        background-color: white;
        color: black;
        font: 100%/1.5 sans-serif;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;}
 
    p {
        font-size: 1em;}
 
    #banner {
	position: relative;
	padding: 1px 0 0;}
 
    #contact {
	position:absolute;
	right: 0;
	top: 0;
	width: 12.5em;}
 
    #logo {
	display: block;
	margin: 0 auto;}
 
    @media (max-width: 740px){
	#contact {
	    position: static;
	    text-align: right;
	    width: auto}}
 
    /*]]>*/

  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="banner">
      <p><img id="logo"

		 width: 300px;>
      <p id="contact">Contact details</p>
      </p>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
