Mobipocket conversion: div bgcolor and border

I'm trying to get a mobi file with 'sidebars' (not really on the side) - simply blocks of text that are identified with a grey background and a border:

I know that fancy css will not work, so I went with this:

<div border="1" bgcolor="#EEEEEE">

which renders fine as HTML, but when I run the conversion to Mobi in Calibre, neither the border nor the grey background are visible, either in the Caliber viewer or in the Mobi Reader (under WINE).

(Note: I'm on Linux, so using the Mobipocket conversion software itself is not an option)

Is there something that will work?
