Q: Floating Paragraph???

What exactly would it take to create a floating paragraph effect using 
CSS, such as the following....

Pone----- Ptwo*******
--------- ***********
--------- ***********
-----     ***********

P1 would have a different background and typeface to distinguish itself 
from P2.  P1 would also have line breaks set via the <BR> tag to control 
line length.

Would the following code be sufficient?

P.one { float:left;
