This requires a larger markup update, and this revision is trying as
much as possible to limit itself to just updating and harmonizing the
CSS.  Markup and scripting will come in the next years. ^_^

The stylesheet, or something very close to it, is already in use on
all CSS editor's drafts (anything on https://drafts.csswg.org), so
feel free to take a look at a variety of short (css-will-change) and
long (css-grid) documents.  There are also a few with wide tables and
figures that you can check out, but I haven't gone through and
identified exactly which ones.

(Note: css-fonts is not yet bikeshedded, and still uses some legacy
markup and styling; as such, it's not friendly to the new styles.
It'll be updated shortly, but don't look to it as an example.)
