Use grid-column to Control Spacing: word change

change the word ““consuming”” !
it doesn’t mean what you think it means.

use overlay


The word consume works in the context. You can consume space, i.e. use up some amount of space.

Actual CSS Grid specs using that word to describe the consumption of space:

Fragmenting Grid Layout

When a grid container is continued after a break, the space available to its grid items (in the block flow direction of the fragmentation context) is reduced by the space consumed by grid container fragments on previous pages. The space consumed by a grid container fragment is the size of its content box on that page. If as a result of this adjustment the available space becomes negative, it is set to zero.
