Hm, new problem.  In the symbols() function, if IDENTs are allowed,
the "as <type>" bit requires lookahead.  There are several ways around
this:

1. Disallow the "as" identifier in symbols() (or everywhere?).
2. Change symbols() to put the type first.
3. Remove the ability to specify the type in symbols().
4. Restrict symbols() to only allow strings and images (the full
@counter-style can still take idents).
5. Only allow strings and images everywhere.

Thoughts?
