It's often best to simply pour in your text, surround it by <p> tags, and let the device decide how it displays.
I've been testing some of my epubs in Aldiko, and I have generally not seen a problem with my styling being ignored. I did have to enable an option to use publisher styling though, I think that was off by default if I remember right.

Aldiko, Bluefire, Mantano, Nook, Sony and Overdrive (no particular order) seemed to be the apps that did the best job of rendering my epubs as I have styled them.

Moon+, FBReader, Cool Reader, Fabrik and Kobo were not so good. The books are readable, just don't look as nice.

It's definitely a mixed bag of experiences!
