@simonc CSS is moving to flow relative properties in general - you will notice that grid and flexbox don't refer to x and y, instead to block and inline, start and end.

Browsers are implementing these shorthands, which will do exactly what you want:

- https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/margin-inline
- https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/margin-block
- https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/padding-inline
- https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/padding-block

Have a look at the browser support table at the bottom of the pages for support info.
