The current working draft of 2D transforms says transforms can be applied to inline elements. IE, Firefox and (I think) Opera support transforms on inline elements, but Webkit does not. Simon Fraser made a proposal in Nov 2010 that support for inline element transforms be removed from the spec[1]. However, there did not appear to be a consensus that this should be done.

I recently raised a Webkit bug about the issue[2] and it was closed by Simon, saying that the requirement would be removed from the spec. With IE 9 and Firefox 4 close to release, transforms are likely to see increased use, and I am concerned that their implementations are about to be made non-standard by this spec change. I really think the working group needs to make a definite decision on this now, with buy-in from all the main browser vendors.
