Hi,

In yesterday's telecon, there was a discussion about whether 
CSS-generated content (especially if it is not purely decorative) 
should be a failure or not.
In the section on "Generated content, automatic numbering, and lists" 
of the current last call working draft of CSS 2.1, I found the 
following statement: "Generated content does not alter the document 
tree. In particular, it is not fed back to the document language 
processor (e.g., for reparsing)." 
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-CSS21-20061106/generate.html#content>).
The current CSS 2 specification says the same thing 
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/generate.html#content>; just before section 12.3).
This seems to me an important difference with DOM scripts that add 
content, and we should keep this in mind in future discussions.

Best regards,

Christophe
