Every now and then someone suggests this and I tend to ignore those  
e-mails as I've no idea how this would realistically work, but asking is  
probably better so I get an understanding of what people expect this  
feature to do. For instance, what would the result be of applying  
float:center on the <span> element below:

   <div><span>TEXT</span> FOO BAR BAZ.</div>

Explaining with what kind of layouts float:center can help, and how it  
helps, would be most useful. That might be able to take the request to the  
next level.
