The Actual Browser Problems with Unquoted Attributes | CSS-Tricks
about using quote marks to enclose attribute value in html. In html5 it's optional and only required if there's a space (and a few other characters as well). So if an item has two or more classes you must enclose in quotes.
If in doubt, use quote marks always (though you don't have to)

Editorial Layouts, Floats, and CSS Grid | Rob Weychert
shows how css grid doesn't accommodate text wrap around images - you end up using a float like always, which seems to undermine the usefullness of grid. (I can't believe this use case wasn't an important consideration in the implementation of grid).
See addendum linked to Rachel Andrew and css exclusions (currently only in Edge)

Constant width to height ratio
nice bit of css that maintains aspect ration and allows content in the div, BUT, if content is larger than the div you have to deal with overflow, or the div will grow, thereby spoiling the aspect ratio. Image is best as background img.
