Hi everyone,

I couldn't find a good answer to the following case in [1]: What
happens if there is no named grid line with the given name for the
'span' case? (for example, grid-row: span 2 'nonexistent' / 5)

The specification defines what to do for the non-spanning case (ie
grid-row: 'nonexistent' / 5). It's unclear that it is supposed to
extend to the 'span' case (both examples would be equivalent to 1 /

An alternative way to treat this is to make it an error and compute
the line placement to 'auto' or 'span 1'.

Any thoughts?
