Where in 1.3 does it say that structure has to be in the markup rather than
in the CSS? Or do you mean "Structures and relationships within the content
can be derived programmatically"? 

If you look at the HTML techniques for this SC, it's all about using the
correct tag to mark up a tekst. I don't think many authors would feel that
using two paragraphs, one floating left and one floating right, would
violate this SC. From a principal point of view, I think breaking up a
sentence in two paragraphs is violating this SC but I don't want to bet my
money whether a panel of experts would agree with me with a high degree of
interrater reliability.
