Thanks! That would make it a lot clearer. I am going to be a bit more
picky however..

These two sentences give me two different results for a case like:

  span::before { display: inline; flow-from: test; counter-reset: x 10;
} span::after { content: counter(x); }

The former suggests "10" and the latter suggests "0". Also, what should
happen for a case like

  span::before { display: inline; flow-from: test; flow-into: test;
counter-reset: x 10; } span::after { content: counter(x); }

Again the former suggests "10" and I can't really tell what the latter
is suggesting.


No opinion whatsoever to which is right.

Cheers,
Kenny
