Inline editor forces a line break

Bug Description

The inline editor uses <div> tags and thus forces a line break before the editable text. For example there's no way to align things like this:

*Programming Languages*: [C++ Python]

where the stuff in *'s is bolded text and the stuff in [] is the editable text (pre-invocation)

This is work one day of work. Either we make the page markup use blocks (it will in the future) or provide inline-block style to the div we care creating, or add a switch to toggle the widget markup to switch between div and span

Barry, is this still an issue in 3.0? Can we close this?

I personally would like to see this fixed in lazr-js. Even if it isn't a problem given the current Launchpad page styles, it could well be a problem for other sites.

What is the distinction between medium, low and high? Are we committed to fixing this? Are we hoping to fix this? Can we say when this will be fixed? I think this is low since I do not see anyone assigned or a milestone targeted.
