--- Comment #19 from Joe Smith <jes@martnet.com> ---
I came across another situation where this feature would have come in really
handy.

Clearly, much work would be needed to implement the inline layout but the file
format wouldn't need a major upset. As far as I can see, it could be as simple
as a new paragraph style attribute, something like text:layout-mode="inline".
Since <text:h> headings already use a paragraph style, the attribute would be
available to both headings and text.

The attribute could safely be ignored by older processors, in which case the
inline material would be laid out as a block. Not nice, but existing documents
would never expect inline text, so it's no worse than the current situation, or
previous ODF enhancements,
