The grammar is fixed, but this text still implies ordering "The value
consists of one or two keywords: the first sets the orientation and
direction of the flexbox's main axis, which affects the direction that
flexbox items are laid out in, and the meaning of the ‘flex-pack’
properties; the second, if specified, marks the flexbox as
being multi-line and sets the direction of the cross axis, which affects
the direction new lines are stacked in, and the meaning of the ‘flex-align’
and ‘flex-line-pack’ properties."
