Same answer as before -- if you look at the morphs in the world (open
Drop'NDrag and start manipulating them), you'll see that you have three
morphs in a box, two with text of fixed length, and one of varying size in
between them that fills the rest of the space. As noted, the text aren't
justified in their respective boxes, they are moved to the outer corners of
the box by the inside spacer.
As noted, for the phrase "justification" to mean anything with respect to a
piece of text, you must specify also an area of (at least temporarily)
fixed width in which the text is to reside.
Bob's example performs as indicated.
