Amaya does not display correctly inline span with a float property.

Amaya does not display correctly inline span with a float property. It 
introduces a line break before the float in the parent text.

<p style="text-align: justify;">Some text, that I call parent, the span 
being the child, supposed to go round the following note (1) HERE <span 
style="float: right;">(1) Some note supposed to float right</span> and 
some more parent text to continue around the floating note.</p>

In this schematic example, Amaya would cut the text after the word HERE, 
which is not asked by me, and not by the html or css specifications 
either, as far as I know. Furthermore Amaya pretends to justify even the 
broken short line finishing with HERE by the full width of the window.

For a real world example, compare 
http://www.meeus-d.be/marxisme/philo/cours3.html in Firefox and in Amaya.
