Then take apart a hand-crafted epub book from the collection here on Mobileread, one that does what you would like to do, and check out their CSS and markup.

There are plenty that achieve a remarkable amount. Indenting, drop caps, stylized breaks, first word, first paragraph, lots of other effects.

For the best result, you're going to need to hand code.

ps: or try Sigil, but wait for the 2.3 version this week that will deal with a code-view/book-view syncing bug.
