Hey all,

The current editor's draft of Exclusions includes wrap-flow:maximum [1]
that allows you to put inline content on the side of the shape with the
largest available space for each line. If, for instance, you had a
diagonal shape running from the top left to bottom right, inline content
would start flowing on the right side of the shape until some midpoint,
then continue flowing on the left side of the shape. This property is
mainly meant for cases where it's not clear where the shape will be
relative to the inline content, and you want to give the largest possible
measure for the inline content to flow.

Since we have a maximum value, should we also include minimum? Once you've
implemented maximum it's trivial to add minimum as well, and there may be
uses for wrapping on the smaller side. I think I'd rather have both in the
specification to make sure we haven't locked authors out of a case where
they need minimum. Unless I hear arguments against, I'll add it in.

Thanks,

Alan
