Why does setting the list element's display to inline instead of inline-block not work for the centering?

I thought header{ text-align: center; } works for both inline and inline-block elements. Aside from padding, margin, width, height properties, what other differences do inline and inline-block have?

Thank you in advance!

the major difference is that display: inline-block does not add a line-break after the element, so the element can sit next to other elements.
