targeted

column

distortion ?

this sample in Example 1, renders the `#deals` to the right of the `{`
in Firefox 38.0.5, which is really painful.

why isn't ::first-letter a link?

"is not rendered,  as if it were display:none" -- while this probably
isn't technically ambiguous, it's a pain in my neck to reason through,
I'd request you rewrite it to avoid having `not` precede `as if`; does
this mean the same as what you intended:

However, an anonymous flex item that contains only white space is
treated as if it were display:none, i.e. it is not rendered.


Example 2 doesn't include a demo, while I'm sure i could copy this out
and make one, is there a reason not to include the demo?


> However, it does participate in the reordering step (see order), which has an effect in their painting order.

in -> on


Example 3 doesn't seem to be an example. There's neither code nor a
demo visible.

This green thing is rendered like a `Note` but doesn't say it's a
Note, and it's written to sound like a definition, which is quite
confusing. What is it?


Example 4 might benefit from a note explaining that the general figure
intentionally grows when :hover is applied to /something/ within the
box... (but that it retains that general size when you shift the
:hover within it...)


> This determines the direction that flex items are laid out in.

Personally I'd favor:

This determines the direction in which flex items are laid out.


Example 5, the first example has 4 overrunning its box (FF 38.0.5), is
that intended? -- If it is, a note explaining why would be helpful.


[I'll try to send comments on §6ff later]
