Yes, I know.  The (:div:), (:div1:), and (:table:) tags really
expect to have HTML attributes following them, as opposed to
wikistyles.  The way to get the wikistyle is to use your
second example, although it can be made slightly shorter with:

    (:div1:) %float=left width=400px div%

I'm still thinking of adding a >>>...<<< shortcut, which would

    >>>float=left width=400px<<<
