<div style="content: 'string'"
onclick="alert([window.getComputedStyle(this, null).getPropertyValue('content'),this.style.content])">

  displays ",string", correct should be "string,string";

Test case

Seems like we're missing lots of these.  Content in particular:

This would be a trivial bug to fix for someone.  Most important would be to write a nice test case, ideally one which tests a whole bunch of the missing properties, and is in the newer fast/js/ testing style.

Implements getComputedStyle for the content, counter, outline-offset, background-position-x and background-position-y properties.

To correctly return content containing counters I added a new type to CSSPrimitiveValue, CSS_COUNTER_NAME. I'm not convinced this is the right thing to do but was the best option I could come up with. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Since you seem doubtful on the CSS_COUNTER_NAME thing I'll leave that for someone else to comment on.

The argument can be a const RenderStyle*

> +static PassRefPtr<CSSValue> counterToCSSValue(PassRefPtr<RenderStyle> style, int propertyID)

There are no individual CSS properties for background-repeat-x and y (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-background/#the-background-repeat), so I don't think we should be supporting computed style for them.

Thanks Simon!
I made the changes you suggested and removed the background-repeat-x|y properties.
Please take another look when you get a chance.
