Hi www-style,

Here are a few other minor typos / issues I noticed when going over the 
latest flexbox editor's draft[1]:

  * 5.1. Resolving Flexible Lengths:
   "Conversely, each flexbox item‘s’ vertical margins,"
  --> The second apostrophe wants to go away. ('each' is singular, so we 
want a singular possessive --> item's)

  * 5.2. The ‘fr’ unit
   "The ‘fr’ unit, defined in the Values and Units spec [CSS3VAL]"
  --> That unit isn't actually defined (or mentioned at all) in the 
CSS3VAL page that this links to.[2]  This probably wants to link 
somewhere else...?

  * 6. The ‘flex-pack’ property
    "end [...] The first packing space (between the edge of
     the flexbox and the margin of the first flexbox item )"
  --> stray space character before close-paren

  * 8. Free Space Calculation and Distribution
    "flex tuple [...] containing a minimum size, a maximum size,
     a preferred size, a positive flexibility, and a negative
     [...continuing from a bit lower down in 8.1...]
     "2. Resolve all relevant lengths [...] into flex tuples of
     [preferred size, minimum size, maximum size, positive flex,
      negative flex]."
  --> The tuple orderings disagree here, on where "preferred size" goes. 
(not a big deal, as the orderings aren't normative -- just a consistency
