Block elements are those that are displayed as blocks without a stylesheet or
with the default stylesheet (and also with most other stylesheets) by browsers.

Inline elements are those that are displayed inline without a stylesheet or
with the default stylesheet (and also with most other stylesheets) by browsers.

(this distinction is rather irrelevant for this bug, because the text says
"regardless of whether it is a block element or inline element", but the
information given here may be helpful in other contexts)

As for background information, a quick Google search found e.g.:
