Re: Proposed ::last-line and ::last-letter selectors

Apologies, I misunderstood, I was still thinking of the last line.

However, (with an accessibility hat on), shouldn't this be accessible 
via the HTML? Wouldn't an animated gif (with a width set in EMs and 
appropriate alt text) be better for this purpose?

(Ignoring the WAI guideline that says "don't use blinking/flashing 
content" for the moment ;)

Assuming it was implemented, I can't imagine using it, as it would look 
strange. If it did the same thing as the first-letter, applying 
typographical effects would do things to the last letter, which doesn't 
make much sense when reading.

Even assuming there were theoretical uses, I certainly wouldn't 
prioritise this in the same league as getting things like CSS3's layout 
ready and out the door, or providing a selector for text nodes:
