div::before {
  content:url(missing-image.png);
}

First, here too, the CSS3 double-colon grammar is used.

Second, some browsers like Konqueror 4.5.3 will display a real missing
image icon in place of that missing-image.png and this is acceptable,
expectable according to CSS2.1:

"User agents may vary in how they handle invalid URIs or URIs that
designate unavailable or inapplicable resources."
4.3.4 URLs and URIs
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#value-def-uri

So, I think that testcase is invalid and should be removed.

regards, Gérard
