[css3-grid-layout] New working draft: Grid Layout

The CSS WG published the first draft of a new module:

    Grid Layout

The draft defines different ways to associate invisible grids of 
horizontal and vertical lines with elements, to make aligning several 
elements easy, even if the elements are not next to each other in the 

The draft expands on a number of features from multi-column, grid 
positioning, template layout, flexible box layout, and the (not yet 
published) regions.

E.g., where all slots in the grid in the template layout draft are 
disjoint, this draft allows slots that overlap.

It is likely that the various grid ideas will eventually be pruned and 
redistributed over fewer drafts. Apart from multicol, which is already 
CR, that might, e.g., be a flexible box module and a grid/regions 

As always, we welcome feedback. Please, send comments to this mailing 
list <www-style@w3.org>, and please start the subject line with the 
short name in square brackets, i.e., [css3-grid-layout], as I did on 
this message.

For the CSS WG,
