dbaron has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-align] Two issues with "Values other than stretch" sentence ==
I have two issues with this sentence:

> Values other than stretch cause non-replaced absolutely-positioned boxes to use fit-content sizing for calculating auto inline sizes.

In the "Other details" part of [the rules for `justify-self` on absolutely-positioned boxes](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-align/#justify-abspos).

* It should be clear that `normal` acting like `stretch` is not a value other than `stretch`
* the size in question is not an inline-size when the absolutely-positioned box is orthogonal to its containing block

Both of these issues apply equally to the equivalent sentence:

> Values other than stretch cause non-replaced absolutely-positioned boxes to use shrink-to-fit sizing for calculating auto block sizes.

in the [rules for `align-self` on absolutely-positioned boxes](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-align/#align-abspos).
