Great idea. Especially since a similar behavior (with slight change of 
markup) can be achieved by a float.


<h1 style="background: lime"> <span style="float:left; background: 
red">Float</span> text</p>

<h1 style="background: lime; height: 90px"> <span style="float:left; 
background: red; height: 100%">Float</span> text</p>
