Tantek, I can't believe that question !!!! Does MS *really* need such a user
input to implement a part of the spec MS participated in ?-(

These pseudos and the 'content' property and counters are *extremely*
important. Please understand that I have my big-MS-customer hat on,
not my css-wg-member's. Electricité de France *needs* inserted content
and counters to webify its existing SGML applications. We need that
for automatic numbering of non-adjacent elements. We need that for
automatic visual annotation of technical documents w/o modifying the
document itself.
