Thanks! Though I don't see the commit for that yet?

I noticed that in the flex shorthand some of the flex-basis
description is duplicated (auto becoming content), maybe it would be
better to instead just point readers to the longhand. Maybe that
doesn't matter.

"available size" in step E for consistency?)
