Description Quintin May 2008-07-14 05:55:03 PDT
The 'none' and 'normal' values for the 'content' attribute are ignored. Setting the value of 'content' to the empty string works.

Setting content to empty string does *not* work, and should not.

'content: ""' means to render the element, but with no text inside, so, for example, if there is a padding and a background on the pseudo-element it must be drawn.

'content: none' prevents the p-element from being drawn at all.
