this query wasn't related to authoring, rather user accessibility,  
sorry for any confusion, XSLT isn't relevant in this instance.

content seems designed for a rather different purpose, it isn't clear  
that your suggestion would be supported "the value of the content  
property is a sequence of text strings..." not images as I read it,  
but please let me know if my quote has been updated.

content: url(clara.gif) covers the second case, but the first case is
very much semantic or did you have in mind that all links would be
given an id? CSS isn't a CMS solution, but merely a presenation
system. XSLT would handle the first case better than CSS.
