content: "\foo";
alt: attr(data-bar);


content: "\foo", alt(attr(data-bar));

content: "\foo", alt attr(data-bar); 

I think the syntax complexities of the alternates are more problematic than the possibility that alt might not cascade perfectly in some edge cases. Authors understand alt pretty well already; a new CSS property seems the most logical to me. 

I’m curious if Tab will weigh in since alt was his suggestion originally.
