The height of the content varies depending on how much content has 
arrived so far, so you cannot get a final solution from phase two until 
all the content has arrived and thus incremental rendering is either not 
possible (if you want right first time), or requires that text 
continually move until the input is complete.

PS I presume that "flex units" are still a proprietary feature of your 
browser, not part of CSS.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
