<web> Any HTML element that is rendered in the same position as normal plain text, i.e. to the right of the preceding text (for left-to-right scripts).
This contrasts with a block-level elements that is always placed below the preceding text line.
Inline elements typically specify formatting, e.g. <B>
(bold), <KBD> or the kind of content, e.g. (2011-01-04)
though they also include things like inline images (<IMG>)
and text areas (<TEXTAREA>).
