Hey all,


I know the difference between display:inline and display:inline-block, but I
was wondering if there's a good reason why someone would prefer inline over
inline-block? The only reason that I can think of is if you want to
hard-block top/bottom paddings/margins, but are there any other things that
display:inline can handle which inline-block can't?


Or put differently, is there still a use-case for applying display:inline
instead of inline-block (taking browser support out of the equation).
