Good idea. I managed to strip it down to a tiny HTML page, reproduced here:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
<html><head><title>Test case</title></head><body>

<div style="float: right">
   <p>This is the first line, a little longer than<br>
      The second line.</p>

If you view that in Firefox, IE, or Chrome, you'll see it how I want it to look.
When I compile it into a MOBI with Calibre, I just end up with those lines flush left. (I viewed the MOBI in the Kindle emulator and on my Kindle 3.)

Here's what the file looks like from the "processed" folder in the debugging folder:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<html xmlns="">
    <title>Test case</title>
<meta content="; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type"/><link href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/><style type="text/css">
		@page { margin-bottom: 5.000000pt; margin-top: 5.000000pt; }</style></head>
  <body class="calibre">

<div class="calibre1">
   <p class="calibre2">This is the first line, a little longer than<br class="calibre3"/>
      The second line.</p>

And here's its stylesheet.css:

@namespace h "";
.calibre {
    display: block;
    font-size: 1em;
    line-height: 1.2;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: 5pt;
    margin-right: 5pt;
    margin-top: 0;
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
    page-break-before: always
.calibre1 {
    float: right
.calibre2 {
    display: block;
    margin-bottom: 1em;
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    margin-top: 1em
.calibre3 {
    display: block
