ISSUE-567: ARIA in CSS for generated content like pseudo-elements

ARIA for CSS generated content

ARIA in CSS for generated content like pseudo-elements

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS AAM
Raised by:
James Craig
Opened on:
2013-03-25
Description:
Since CSS allows generated of UI element ("pseudo-elements" in CSS) like ::before and ::after with the use of the content property, an author should be allowed to override certain things on that element—like the label or hidden state.

But most of the discussion settled in March 2013:

Definitely an ARIA 2.0 thing, despite the fact that there are existing problems demonstrated in content today.

Related notes:

This is probably irrelevant now that CSS will allow "alt" on pseudo-elements.
