There is increased interest lately in layout mechanisms that are good for developing application UI.  To address this interest, the IE team would like to explore a two-dimensional grid layout that is consistent with existing layout systems, while providing new capabilities using algorithms that are clean and well-defined.

Attached [1] is a proposed specification for "grid alignment". It targets applications in the same space as Template Layout, Tables (historically and often inappropriately), Grid Positioning, and also multiple script solutions.

The goal of this proposal is not to compete with existing modules, but rather add and integrate, to make progress towards something that is a good match for the target requirements, while also generating interest from multiple vendors. The particular syntax and behavior shows what the IE team would be interested in, but by no means are we settled on the details.

We would like to present this proposal at the F2F.

Looking forward to feedback and discussion.
Alex
