I need to figure out how to call a pair of fundamental CSS concepts in my upcoming book and would like to hear which option you think is best — or least confusing.
When introducing width and height I explain that by default width takes as much horizontal space as it can, while height takes as little vertical space as possible. This leads to a discussion of these two opposed models that I excerpt below.

Just now I published part XI of the Thidrekssaga: Sigfrid’s death.
The story now switches to the Niflungen and Sigfrid. First Sigfrid’s youth is treated — and it sometimes seems a parody of the traditional hero’s story.

Finally, Grimhild and Brunhild quarrel, and Hagen decides to kill Sigfrid. This sets the stage for Grimhild’s revenge.
Just now I published part X of the Thidrekssaga: The battle of Gransport.
After helping Attila and Erka, Dietrich asks for their help to return to Bern. He sets out with a large army of Huns and battles Ermenrik at Gransport. His brother Diether and the two sons of Attila and Erka die in the battle, and Dietrich is so upset that he returns to Soest without following up on his (apparent) victory.
