The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the
CSS Box Alignment Module Level 3:


This module contains the features of CSS relating to the alignment of
boxes within their containers in the various CSS box layout models:
block layout, table layout, flex layout, and grid layout.

This update contains better and more thorough definitions of the effect
of self-alignment on statically-positioned absolutely-positioned boxes
and of content-alignment on scroll containers. See specific changes at

Note: One interesting and useful side-effect of these changes is that
the internal padding of a scroll container will increase the scrollable
area at the block-end and inline-end edges of a scroll container with
non-'normal' content alignment, resolving a longstanding author request.

Special thanks to David Baron for his detailed review and filing the
issues that led to these changes.

Please review the draft, and send any comments to the www-style mailing
list <www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-align-3] (as I did on this
message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at

For the CSS WG,
