So, when such span-behaving-like-button is not activated, it should get
back to its normal position: that is what I understand here.

Default and initial value is baseline anyway, to begin with.

Andrew,

Whenever you have special requests or particular and precise issues, best
for everyone involved is to provide an url with all of the (only) relevant
valid markup and valid css code. I assure you that you will get more
people to reply or provide suggestions, corrections, improvements, etc..
Over here, it saves time. Over here, anything that can save time will be
appreciated and will help us trying to help you.

Here's my proposal:

If you want to move the text and only the text, not the box, then this can
be worked out too.

regards, Gérard
