try it with FLEX :)

add it to Parant tag and all Children element ( only DIRECT childrens will be in row )

displey: flex; flex-direction: row;

Example DIV where is style will be container for all ROW TAGS, (childrens are "aaaaa", "sssss") but if you give Children to aaaa or sss div you will need add another displey flex

<div style="displey: flex;">
    <div> aaaaa </div>
    <div> sssss </div> 
</div>
