No, it does not.  If you then look at the computed style, it'll come 
back as "inline", not "inline-block".

Now the _rendering_ is the same for replaced elements whether they're 
inline-block or not... mostly.  For replaced elements with nontrivial 
baselines, even that's not clear.  But that's a consequence of the spec 
explicitly having different layout rules for replaced and non-replaced 
display:inline elements.
