Oh I don't disagree.

It's not really what I want for ::marker though.

For ::marker I really just want a normal 'inline' box, except that in the
non-replaced case, 'width' has to apply to it, with 'text-align' deciding
how stuff is aligned in the resulting box. I also need to define how line
breaks and overflow are handled in that case.

So 'inline-block' works except that it doesn't interact with the line box
using 'line-height', which I think is important for ::marker.
