CSS generated content cannot be selected and copied
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Trying to highlight text which is generated by CSS using the content property isn't possible. Even using the 'select all' option will miss the CSS generated content. At the URL provided, I attempted to highlight and copy the URL (branded IRI on the web site) so I could browser to the source page, but this wasn't possible in Firefox 1.0.4. As a site note, Opera 8 worked as expected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Browse to a web site which used the CSS 'content' generation property (see example). 2. Scroll to a quote which contains a 'Source IRI' (generated by CSS). 3. Attempt to highlight the URL (branded IRI on the example web site). Actual Results: Text generated by CSS isn't highlighted or selectable. Expected Results: CSS generated text to be highlighted in the same manor as the static text.
