See the second paragraph here:  
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#inline-boxes

(The meaning of "atomic" in this context is "of or forming a single  
irreducible unit or component in a larger system", as  
oxforddictionaries.com puts it; this alludes to the fact that thb box of  
an "atomic" inline-level element cannot be further split up across  
multiple lines)
