Center and justify text at the same time

Important typography (print or web) note: Justification only happens on FULL LINES of text, that is lines of text that go from the left edge to the right edge of their container. So if you only have 4 words,it will look exactly like left-justified ( was will the last , incomplete) line of text of any long block of type).

You really don’t need the extra element… for mere justification ( text-align must happen in a block element, not a span; as a span shrinkwraps to the width of its content)

For this particular application floating the two elements may be the only way to go.
