The CSS WG has published a First Public Working Draft
of the CSS Box Alignment Module Level 3:

     http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-align/

This module defines a common set of properties for aligning
boxes within their containers in the various CSS box layout
models: block layout, table layout, flex layout, and grid
layout. In particular, it attempts to provide the alignment
capabilities missing from CSS block layout and to tie that
together with alignment in tables, grid, and flexbox.

This is a First Public Working Draft, and the module is in
the unstable "exploratory" stages of design. *However* the
property names and their effect on flexbox elements is at
Last Call in the CSS Flexible Box Layout module:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-flexbox/
And will be frozen when that goes to CR. Note: The deadline
for Last Call comments on Flexbox is 3 July 2012.

We welcome feedback on the new Box Alignment module.
Please send any comments to this mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>,
and please, prefix the subject line with

     [css3-align]

(as I did on this message).

For the CSS WG,
fantasai
