Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-content] computed value for 'content' property is unclear

Other related questions that the spec should answer but doesn't seem 
to:  does the <code>url()</code> value for <code>content</code> only 
load images, or does it also load other sorts of resources like videos
 and iframes?  If it's loading SVG images, is it loading them as 
full-fledged documents (like iframes) or in the somewhat reduced way 
that the &lt;img> element loads them?

Apparently Blink implements this, and lack of that implementation in 
other engines leads to [compatibility 
problems](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1239922), so it
 would be good to get these questions answered in the interests of 
interop.

We have a [Gecko 
bug](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=215083) on 
implementing this feature, but there's really very little actual spec 
to go on here.
