Hello Yves,

I'm wordering what you think the inline vs. block distinction
is needed for. This distinction is to some extent a stylesheet
issue, i.e. it may differ for different presentations of the
same content.

If this is relevant to internationalization and/or translation
(I'm guessing something to do with segmenting?), it would be
better maybe to talk about this in terms that are closer to
our area and clearly identify the relevance to i18n or l10n.

Regards,   Martin.
