Ok, so we've got 'inline-block' and 'inline-table'. The 'run-in' 
depends on following content, but why is there no 'inline-list-item'?
(IMHO the marker should not be 'display' dependant at all of course).

To me it would have made sense to have only 
block-context-participating tables, and if you really really wanted a
table in a line, put it inside an 'inline-block' now that they are 
available.

Thanks for the quick reply,
