Dear Ihor,

Thank you for taking the time with your reply.

Oh, my!  I expected the exact opposite default for *inline* source,
namely show code and hide results.  But then, I noticed that these
"inline" elements do not work in tables, so I cannot use them to
syntax-highlight a table of LaTeX commands anyway.  Bummer!

So then, when should we use these "inline blocks" in Org?  I expected
them to provide inline (nicely rendered) code anywhere, including in the
tables, like LaTeX provides in-line (nicely rendered) math everywhere.

(I also keep wondering why the feature uses a "special" syntax with
underscores when everything else in Org uses dashes.)

P.S. I also experimented with the src_shell some more:

With #+PROPERTY: header-args+ :exports both, src_shell{ls} exports as
"ls".  I did not expect that.  Note that I executed a normal BEGIN_SRC
"shell" block seconds before, so Emacs must have loaded the relevant
Lisp code.  I then started 'emacs -Q' and tried again.  This time,Org
exported 'src' followed by a subscript 'shell'.

Completely and utterly confused,
