The content property is used with the :before and :after psuedo-elements to display content either before or after a specified CSS selector. This content can include strings, quotations marks, URLs, and counters. Note that the content property does not inherit. However, the :before and :after psuedo-elements can inherit any inheritable styles that are in effect, or you can specify various CSS properties to effect the appearance of the content.
 
:after
 
The :after psuedo-element dictates that the content is to be added after the element specified by the selector. The colon is mandatory.
 
Syntax: selector:after { ... }.
 
:before
 
The :before psuedo-element dictates that the content is to be added before the element specified by the selector. The colon is mandatory.
 
Syntax: selector:before { ... }.
