SORRY, incorrect: it does *not* trigger hasLayout. 

CORRECT INTEPRETATION: *{display:inline-block}  creates a line-break
opportunity.  

Every tested browser treats an empty element with {display:inline-block} as a
line-break oportunity. See my *heavily* updated test page:
http://malform.no/testing/html5/nobr

Thus, instead of wbr{content:"\00200B"}, we could simply say
wbr{display:inline-block}. This is far more compatible with existing web
browsers, as well.
