Using firebug, it appears the margin attribute is being acted on, just not the way I am used to in JSF.
The margin is increased on top and side but does not affect any other component. The bottom margin is not affected at all.
I really want to have a little space between the two inplaceinput components. Using the margin-bottom does not increase the space between the two.
I think there is something in the big picture that I am missing here.
BTW: using richfaces 3.3 and firefox 3.0.7
