Ah, right -- I see 'justify-self' is linkified to point there. Makes sense.

I think it'd be worth changing -- I think it's clearer if it uses a
property that's defined & explained in the flexbox spec.

It's also less likely to be a source of headaches for people trying to
test & build on top of that example. (It's conceivable that UAs with
flexbox support may take a while to honor the other CSS Alignment
properties -- I don't know if any browser supports "justify-self" right
now. So anyone trying to test the code from that example will likely run
into trouble, currently, because "justify-self" will be rejected.)

Thanks,
