The only way to do this (without using tables) is to set “display:block” for each child, but that will cause each one to display on a separate line, so basically the answer is that it can't be done with the current CSS support. I think support for CSS “float” would likely be necessary but that is unlikely to be implemented, at least not in the near future.

The only solution I can think of is to display the parent element as an embedded XFT form inside of which you can pretty much do anything with layout, though you then lose the “free flowing” aspect of that portion of the document, and you pick up all the baggage (and other restrictions) that go together with using XFT.
