How to control word-spacing in justified text with CSS?

I have 2 blocks of text that are pretty small (just under a paragraph each) and they really look better justified but the problem is that text-align: justify; sometimes adds really large spaces and makes the text somewhat ugly (the opposite effect, obviously).Is it possible to more finely tune the word spacing with CSS so that this doesn't happen?
