IE 7 and CSS :before pseudo-selector

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse

    I have googled for quite some while and found many people stating that IE 7 does not support :before pseudo selectors.

    However, in this List Apart article ( it seems as if it does work.

    Take a look at the list with the double quote (>>) bullets. Inspecting the css does not show any IE tricks. However, if I try to replicate it does NOT work in IE 7.

    Any ideas?

    IE7 does not support CSS generated content.

    It doesn't work on that page also. The example that works isn't using generated content, it has the characters in the HTML.

    You're right. It just doesn't show that when I use Firefox! So they indeed render the content based on the browser...
