There is some documentation for the MediaWiki syntax at 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Editing and 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Advanced_editing

... but, as far as I know, MediaWiki markup itself does not let you 
adjust the alignment of text (except in tables). However, MediaWiki does 
let you use (a subset of) HTML and CSS, which can easily do what you want:

<div style="text-align:right;">
This text will be aligned to the right.
</div>

<div style="text-align:justify;">
This text will be justified.
</div>
