IE8 does not support CSS 2.1 generated content
It seems that contrary to the MSDN documentation, Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)
still cannot render CSS2 and CSS2.1 counters, nor understand quotes and
attr(X).
Note that Firefox, Safari and Opera have handled this correctly for quite
some time.

The following HTML document allows for testing IE8:

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>generated-content</title>
<style type="text/css">
BODY:before {content: "language: [" attr(lang) "]"; color: silver;
font-family: monospace;}
BODY {counter-reset: headline1;}

H1:before {counter-increment: headline1; color: red; content: "Question "
counter(headline1, decimal-leading-zero) ": ";}
H1:after {color: red; content: "?";}
H1 {font-size: 12pt; font-weight: normal;counter-reset: headline2;}

H2:before {color: red; counter-increment: headline2;content:
counter(headline1,decimal-leading-zero) "." counter(headline2) ": ";}
H2 {font-size: 10pt; font-weight: normal;}

Q {quotes: "«" "»" "“" "”"; color: red;}
</style>
</head>

<body lang="en">

<p>If attribute detection is implemented, the text
<span style="font-family: monospace">language: [en]</span> should appear in
<span style="color:silver">silver</span> right before this line.</p>
<h1>Are counters implemented in your browser</h1>
<h2>if yes, the headline above should start with <q>Question 01: </q>and end
with a <q>question mark</q> typed in red.</h2>
<h2>furthermore, this line should be numbered <q>01.2</q></h2>
<h1>Do they work</h1>
<h2>if yes, the previous headline should be <q>Question 02</q>.</h2>
<h2>and this line should start with <q>02.2:</q></h2>
<h2>and if quotes work, this <q>red text should be surrounded by <q>«</q>
and <q>»</q>, and these signs should be surrounded by special quotes when
quoted.</q></h2>

</body>

</html>

Firefox, Safari, and Opera are all released versions and have been for quite
some time. IE8 is still just a release candidate with as yet unresolved
issues.

But RC1 is supposedly "feature complete". The OP's point was not that
RC1 has a bug, but rather that RC1 does not implement a CSS feature: so
either RC1 is not truly feature complete, or else the CSS in question
will not be supported by IE8.

Re: IE8 does not support CSS 2.1 generated content
Indeed, this is not a "bug" but a failure to implement an important (to me
and a couple of others) part of CSS2. A major goal of IE8 was to comply with
CSS2.

Perhaps so. However, my point is that he should have posted his complaints
about IE8 RC1 to the newsgroup for IE Beta.
