Issue 298

Last week I spent a bit of time digging into container queries in order to document them for MDN. I'm also looking forward to the virtual conferences I'm part of this month. An Event Apart Spring Summit and Web Directions hover.

I'm also going to update my talk on all the new things in CSS for an internal event I'm speaking at, I have plenty of things to add!
