You get something looking like <span><::before>$US</::before>100</span>.

You do *not* get <span><::before>red</::before>100</span>, because you
didn't invoke the variable.  You just have a string who's contents
look like the name of a variable.  If you want this version, do this

span::before { content: $US; }
