Special alignment option for poetry
|Component:||Open Publication Structure (OPS)|
When typesetting poetry, it is normal to have lines left-aligned. If a line doesn't fit the page, it is broken at a convenient place and the second part is right-aligned, and often with a mark (like an opening square bracket) before it. This is a rather specific need and, as far as I know, it's not a supported property in CSS, so if accepted it would be an extension for EPUB.
It should probably work too if manual linebreaks (<br />) are included, meaning that only lines automatically broken by the render engine should be aligned in this special way, while lines after a <br /> should start left-aligned as usual.
The Mobipocket format includes support for this special alignment see the bottom here, though support for this does not seem quite extended in readers.
