You need to understand how TS works.

Ok, so "lib.rightcontent" is HTML

Now you copied "styles.content.getRight" to it and it became CONTENT 
because "styles.content.getRight" is CONTENT. Thus your previous line is 
discarded. So it was not needed at all.

Checking TSRef at
yes, "wrap" property exists. It will always wrap.

Checking "wrap" type: it is "wrap", not "stdWrap", so "required" 
property does not exist for it.

Correct behavior with your TS. You need to use stdWrap instead of wrap. 
Try this TS:

lib.rightcontent < styles.content.getRight
lib.rightcontent.stdWrap.wrap = <div class="rightdiv"> | </div>
lib.rightcontent.stdWrap.required = 1
