I've found this even without box properties.  If you're using 
Netscape 4.0b2 or 4.0b3, see 
<http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/css/style-html.html> for an 
example of true "beta" support.  All inline elements are treated as 
block elements, AFAICT, if they have *any* style rules associated 
with them.  Explicitly setting { display: inline } causes text to 
overlap and disappear.

And styled pages are still completely inaccessible if JavaScript is 
turned off :(
