LIT to EPUB Text Justification

I have a number of .lit that I am converting to epub. The conversion is successful except the text isn't justified, it is left-aligned. I have used different input profiles and extra css to no avail. I'm currently trying to use Sigil to justify the text (been processing for the last hour - I think it might be hung). Does anyone have any tips/hints to help me justify the text?

Justification is not readily supported for ePub as of yet. With CSS it can be set without much trouble, but the readers will not support it yet.

I believe there is a whole discussion about what is better, justification or left alignment. Personally I would very much like justification support in readers soon. For Sony readers the technology is present, because Sony's own format can be justified. My feeling is that it should not be a big deal to implement, but apparently it is.

Sorry, but that's crap. If I've the option for alignment, and I use it, I make the decision, not the software or a holy committee.

All the mobile ADE implementations except for the Sony Readers support justification (left or full, with full the default).

I agree completely. It should be a personal decision. However, there are always some groups who start a kind of holy war to try to persuade other of their version of the truth.

Anyway, I always set it to full justification and I hope Sony will support the it in the (near?) future.

Well, I would like they showed me all the left-indented books which support their theory (paper books, of course)
