Hi,

CSS2 don't define, according to what I have read, the behavior of the
"content" property with the following example. Suppose you have :

	E:after { content: "A word\AAnother word" }

How will the UA undertand the \ escape character ? Like \A or like \AA ?
Is this example CSS-conformant ? Is an white space required after any
escape sequence ? And before ?
