frantisek,

look at the mediawiki wikitext examples page for help:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext_examples

also, I searched le goog and for 'mediawiki text justify right' and found
http://www.mwusers.com/forums/showthread.php?3300-Align-text-left-and-right-in-one-line

which gave me a forum post with the answer you seek:
You will have to use some CSS for the effect that you want. The simplest
and most common way to do this is using an outer DIV with the text aligned
to the right, and then float an inner DIV to the left.

Example:
<div style="text-align: right;">
<div style="float: left;">Left text</div>
Right text
</div>


I tested this at
https://noisebridge.net/index.php?title=NoiseLand&action=submit and it is
live now, you can look for a right justified easter egg there.

hth,
-rma
