One bitter disappointment in attempting to use CSS with either Gecko or IE5
was that neither, apparently, supports generated text. That's a CSS2
feature (i.e., not CSS1, which itself isn't yet fully supported), so I
shouldn't have been too surprised. But it's such a useful feature that it
was a letdown not to have it.
