I don't want to move the code itself. I just want to be able to make it appear lower or higher on the page simply by altering the css.
Floats by definition display as soon as they can. Either right away, or after any preceding floats are finished; that's the only variable. So you can only move it by physically moving the code.
It may help to remember that HTML+CSS isn't a programming language. It's "only" a fairly sophisticated word processor.
