centering text then right-aligning the block

P: 1
I need to center the text in a div within its natural width (ie the width of the longest line) and then place that div on the RH side of the window.

<div id="#ident">
<div id="#address">
stuff<br>
much longer stuff<br>
more stuff
</div>
</div>

div#ident { text-align:right; }
div#address { text-align:center; }

but all this does is center the text and ignore the right-align. How do I get divs to become context-sensitive (commutative) instead of absolute?
