Thanks for the confirmation.

My next question is whether browsers could apply discretion as to which of a
document's elements need to have their text content evaluated? In this case,
am I right in thinking that a document whose CSS contained no text content
selectors would be rendered as normal, and that a document whose CSS
contained text content selectors on td elements only would render
*other*elements as per usual?

Obviously if such a selector were to be introduced, its use in conjunction
with the wildcard would need to be discouraged.
