CSS Box Alignment Level 3 Updated WD

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Box Alignment Level 3.This module contains the features of CSS relating to the alignment of boxes within their containers in the various CSS box layout models: block layout, table layout, flex layout, and grid layout. It also includes the new cross-module gap properties (row-gap, column-gap, gap).

This update fixes various errors in the previous draft. At this point only one issue is open, and the biggest known problem is an insufficient number of illustrations, particularly in the baseline alignment sections. Other than that, we’re hoping we can wrap up and request a transition to CR soon. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

Special thanks to Melanie Richards for adding illustrations to the Positional Alignment section, especially as they were unexpectedly tricky to diagram due to internationalization-related complexities. Further editorial advice and/or diagrams that would help make this draft easier to understand are very welcome.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-align-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
