I would like to get a text with a justify align but without single-lettered
words on the end of each line:
blah blah blah blah blah ...................................... a
comparison blah blah blah.....................................
the word 'a' is ugly there and should be removed to a next line. I have
tried <BR>'s and 's but it didn't help at all, cause there is no more
good-looking justify align after using them.
In MS Word it is probably called a 'soft enter'.

I suppose you mean align="justify" or its CSS counterpart
text-align: justify. It's usually a bad idea in HTML authoring.
For an explanation, see http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/www/justify.html
What's that supposed to mean? What do the periods mean? Please post a URL,
it's much better than trying to explain layout things in plain text.
Well, if you just want to prevent the word "a" from appearing at the end of
line, then separate it from the next word with instead of a space.
That works no matter what the alignment is (though any no-break spaces
increase the risk of poor appearance of justified text).
Why did you try <BR>? How did you use ?
As I wrote, preventing line breaks (with or otherwise) increases the
risk of getting bad results from justification. But that's caused by the
very prevention of line breaks, not any particular method used for it.
Hardly. And in any case, using your guess of a solution's counterpart in MS
Word isn't a good basis for writing a Subject line. Start from the problem,
not from the assumed solution (especially since the assumption is usually
