Implement alternative text for 'content' property


(Core :: CSS Parsing and Computation, enhancement, P3)

(Depends on 1 open bug, Blocks 1 open bug, )


The CSS Generated Content Module Level 3 defines a way to specify alternative text for the 'content' property value by separating it via a slash after the last <content-list>.

This bug is meant to implement this feature.

Blocks: css-content
Priority: -- → P3
This feature is mainly used for accessibility, I am not familar with accessibility. I am not sure if Firefox already has functionality of providing speech of the alt text.

If it's not what Firefox, mainly as a visual user agent, takes into account in a high priority for now, I'd like to suggest this issue be devided into two steps. In the first step, we don't implement the speech functionality, we can just let Firefox recognise the value.
