Koji, Elika,

4 small issues.

1-

3.1. Block Flow Direction: the writing-mode property
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#block-flow

Figure 9. Example of horizontal list markers in a vertical list
Example 5 in

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/vertical-horizontal-list-markers.png

If you redo this example, please use a font-size of 16px, not 14px.

3.1. Block Flow Direction: the writing-mode property
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#block-flow

The code for Example 5 now generates an horizontal scrollbar

<pre>::marker { writing-mode: horizontal-tb;            vertical-align: 
text-top;
             color: blue; }</pre>

probably should be

<pre>::marker { writing-mode: horizontal-tb;
                 vertical-align: text-top;
                 color: blue; }</pre>

7.4. Flow-Relative Mappings
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#logical-direction-layout

"
within its containing block (float, clear, top, bottom, left, right) For 
inline-level boxes,
"

There should be a period (".") between ")" and "For".

7.3.2. Auto-sizing Block Containers in Orthogonal Flows
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#auto-multicol

I am under the impression that section 7.3.2 is only and strictly about 
multi-column elements and not block containers. So, should it be renamed 
"Auto-sizing multi-column containers in Orthogonal Flows" ?

Since a gradient orange arrow has been used before to indicate inline 
base direction, I wonder - for consistency reasons - if it would not be 
better (for learning and understanding purposes) to reuse such gradient 
orange arrow everywhere an example is shown (example 3 in Section 3.1, 
examples in Section 7.3.x). This would be more work for sure. The black 
arrow in example 3 of section 3.1 would be replaced with a gradient 
green large arrow. Again, this would mean more work but it would be 
reusing consistently the gradient colored arrows in Figures 1, 2 and 3.
Anyway... this is just an idea.
