[css-grid] Typos in section 6.2.1 (Auto Placement Algorithm)

Hi folks,

Writing to report 3 small issues that I ran across this morning in the
Grid ED, in Section 6.2.1 (Auto Placement Algorithm).

Spec link: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-grid/#auto-placement

(1) The following disclaimer needs to mention "block" & "inline" (whose
mentions need to be swapped whenever row & column are swapped):

  # this algorithm is written with the assumption that
  # grid-auto-flow is set to row. If it is instead set
  # to column, swap all mentions of rows and columns
  # in this algorithm.

The algorithm has several mentions of block & inline start & end edges
(e.g. "Set the column position of the cursor to be equal to the
inline-start index of the grid item").  These usages become incorrect if
we swap the "row/column" terms without also swapping block/inline terms.

(2) Typo in Step 4:
  # Initially the auto-placement cursor at is specified

s/at is/is/.

(3) Typo later in Step 4:
  # column and row position, respectively Otherwise,

This needs a period after "respectively".
