both flexbox and grid use start/end for alignment values, while it would be more consistent with flow terminology to use before/after in cross direction (flexbox) and in column direction (grid)
Comment 1 Tab Atkins Jr. 2012-06-07 20:11:57 UTC
After discussion, decided that it doesn't make sense to use the flow-relative terms at all, since flexboxes can flow in *any* direction.

Instead, we're using flex-start/end for all the alignment properties.
