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

== [css-sizing] typos ==
in the first sentence: s/fromy/from/

in the first sentence: s/finite/definite/
These words have roughly the same meaning in CSS, but "definite" has a normative [definition](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-sizing-3/#definite) and the phrase "If the available space is definite" is used in multiple places [elsewhere](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-sizing-3/#ref-for-available%E2%91%A8) so I think it should be preferred.

> The box-sizing property switches the box model between asssigning finite sizes such as `<length>`s and `<percentage>`s ...

Maybe "finite" should be "definite" here too? If not, then "finite" is probably not the word to use here.
