Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-align] Mixing baseline self-alignment with random content alignments

The Working Group just discussed `Mixing baseline self-alignment with random content alignments`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: Mixing baseline self-alignment with random content alignments<br>
&lt;dael> github:<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: I just commented in issue. I thinkg maybe jsut consfused. How can y ou mix abseline self alignment with any other. Baseline cares about your height. Seems odd how it interacted. now that I thought about it you have to do layout before self align so it's  not a problem to do content alignment first and if you do center baseline is in center of element.<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: So I think this i s close invalid.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Is there no risk o f a dependency betweeen sizing and placing things? When you align on baseline can that cause things to grow? Or does that problem not exist?<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: Good question. I should consider that futher.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: If that's okay, we're okay. If not we have a problem<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: What you say makes sense if item itself has a size. You can align and then baseline align. Trickier thing what if it's sized as auto and that auto size is not purely shrinkwrapping around content.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Where that box is positioned can change size of alignment container and then change alignment of content.<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: Can we table for a full example? Example in issue isn't complex enough to show problem.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Okay, we'll come back with a more complex example<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: And anyone with examples, let us know.<br>
