Hello,

the section
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-css3-transforms-20120228/#definitions
notes an 'atomic inline-level element'. I think, neither the (X)HTML
recommendations HTML4.01, XHTML 1.0/1.1, XHTML+RDFa nor
the HTML5 draft does not contain such a construction.
I'm quite familiar with atomic physics, but I have never heared
about such elements ;o) Please explain them and how they are
related to CSS transforms...

Because the heading 'Definitions' implicates this, I propose either:
a) to define this construction, respectively reference a definition
    of such a construction - if it exists.
b) avoid constructions with 'atomic' that have nothing to do with
    atoms to avoid confusion instead of definitions for the reader.
    In general atoms are elements called for example He, Li, Cl etc,
    roughly consisting of a nucleus and electronic wave functions 
    around  (if not ionised), using quantum mechanics those wave
    functions have energetic levels (eigenvalues), but inline?
    Of course, one can prepare atoms/ions in traps within in a line (inline?),
    but this seems not to be related...

Best wishes

Olaf
