Chapter 8. Visual Formatting > Inline Elements

8.4. Inline Elements

Any visible element that is not a block-level element (either directly, or by implication, as with floated elements) is an inline element. Setting box properties for inline elements gets into even more interesting territory than we've already covered. Some good examples of inline elements are the EM tag and the A tag, both of which are nonreplaced elements, and images, which are replaced elements.

Note that none of this applies to table elements. CSS2 introduces new properties and behaviors for handling tables and table content, and these new features behave in ways fairly distinct from either block-level or inline formatting. See Section 10.1 for an overview.
