Ah, looks like nothing useful made it into the spec here... fun.

In particular, CSS2.1 doesn't seem to define anything about the actual 
processing model of "content" (e.g. nothing says that "content: 'x' 'y'" 
should render with the "x" before the "y").

The examples in section 12.1, however, imply that the pseudo-element is 
a container around the stuff generated by "content" and nothing in 
section 12.2 contradicts it....  As a result all UAs implemented 
precisely that.
