Sorry, this needs to be reverted:

1) linking to `css-content` instead of `css2` is not appropriate. `css-content` is a known-to-be buggy draft. It is not as bad as it used to be, as some maintenance work has been done to it, but I don't think it has reached the point where it is more accurate than `css2`. Case in point: it claims that the `content` property applies to all elements, which is absolutely not true in existing implementations. `css2` correctly says that it applies to ":before and :after pseudo-elements "

2) independently of the point above, neither `css-content` nor `css-list-3` are mature enough to be accepted without strong justifications as normative references for a document which is trying to exit CR, so we will have to change these links anyway before next publication of `css-contain`
