Question Text justification issues


This is my first post on the forum. I am new to epub but I know my way very well around InDesign, HTML and CSS.

Here is my problem :
I'm laying out a book for .epub which I preview in ADE and everything seems fine. I then convert it to MOBI using Calibre. I also make sure to check the justified text option in the look and feel section. When I load my .mobi in a kindle, lines using longer words sometimes won't justify. I don't recall seeing this in other ebooks I've read so I must be doing something wrong.

My body text css is :
p.texte {
	line-height: 1.2em;
	font-size: 1em;
	margin-bottom: 0.9em;
	margin-top: 0.00em;
	text-indent: 0.00em;
	margin-right: 0.00em;
	margin-left: 0.00em;
	text-align: justify;
	font-weight: normal;
	font-style: normal;
	color: rgb(0,0,0);
	widows: 2;
	orphans: 2;
Any suggestions? Also, are there any other ways to preview a .mobi file without putting it on a Kindle? (for Mac OS X or PC, whichever) This way I could at least see if my Kindle is the issue or if the file is wrong.

Thank you for your time!
