Updated Working Draft of CSS Box Alignment Level 3

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Box Alignment Module 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 contains better and more thorough definitions of the effect of self-alignment on statically-positioned absolutely-positioned boxes
and of content-alignment on scroll containers. See specific changes.

One interesting and useful side-effect of these changes is that the internal padding of a scroll container will increase the scrollable area at the block-end and inline-end edges of a scroll container with non-normal content alignment, resolving a longstanding author request.

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.)
