|   Well, since it wasn't obvious:
|
|   a. we publicly introduced 'inline-block' over two years ago
|      in the 16 Sep 1999 UI for CSS WD:
|
|    http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/WD-css3-userint-19990916#display
|
|   b. we implemented display:inline-block in IE5/Mac and IE6/Windows.

Dear Tantek,

Thanks a lot for information on Microsoft's implementation of 
display:inline-block.
I downloaded IE6 today, tested it a little bit, and result was quite good.
I just want to express here that I am very impressed.

So I was really underestimating MS power giving 1 year for implementing this 
feature, it's already "here". :-)
Have you, by any chance, implemented also display-role and display-model?

Best Regards,
