            Bug ID: 29076
           Summary: :after selector does not accept content
                    attr(attribute)
           Product: CSSValidator
           Version: CSS Validator
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS 2.1
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org

  Target Milestone: ---

Sometime in about mid-June, 2015, the w3c CSS validator stopped accepting CSS
:after selectors that use the "content:" keyword with the
"attr(<attribute-name>)" value:
  :after { content: attr(<attribute-name>); }

Though files with that selector used to validate properly, and still work in
all browsers, the w3 CSS validator has started giving the error message:
  Value Error : content Parse Error attr(<attribute-name>) 

Example:
This CSS statement
  .pageno:after { content: attr(title); }

gives this error:
  Value Error : content Parse Error attr(title)
