Gecko has no inline-block support.  Last I checked, neither does IE/Win 6.0. 
What you're seeing in IE is that it applies the "width" property to elements 
with display: inline.

To test this properly, you should set "display: inline-block" on both elements 
that have "display: inline" in the UA stylesheet and those that have "display: 
block" and verify that the renderings are the same.  If they're not, the UA is 
not actually parsing the declaration in question.
