This is what I claimed was rare.  That doesn't help the few people 
trying to do it, of course.....

Note that your situation happens to have a simple solution, though, 
given the small scale and specific nature of what you're trying to do:

   p[style="text-align: justify;"], p[style="text-align:justify;"] {
     text-align: left;
   }

This will obviously not work if the @style has more stuf in it, etc, but 
neither did your original selector above.
