I have installed the WYSIWYG module in Drupal 7 and have tried it with CKEditor and TinyMCE. I want users to pick styles from the template css when editing, but here appears to be a bug with the WYSIWYG module (drupal.org/node/1069356) that prevents the style dropdown from working. CKeditor seems to have a similar issue (drupal.org/node/746524), although there does seem to be a patch for this. I am not confident enough to deply the patch though.

Is there a WYSIWYG editor that is able to do this successfully out the box?

CK Editor is the best in my opinion, and it should provide this option out of the box - it is a shame about the bug. In Drupal 6 I use drop down styles for all the line stuff and templates for including more complex block level elements such as jQuery show/hides. I really cant recommend enough how well it works. I suggest that you try the patch before ditching ck editor and seeking an alternative...

Drupal 7 is still pretty new so you will encounter small issues such as you describe, if you are dealing with bleeding edge this is something you have got to expect... otherwise use Drupal 6
