12.2. Generated Content

CSS2 and CSS2.1 include a new feature called generated content. This is content that is created by the browser but is not represented either by markup or content.

For example, list markers are generated content. There is nothing in the markup of a list item that directly represents the markers, and you, the author, do not have to write the markers into your document's content. The browser simply generates the appropriate marker automatically. For unordered lists, the marker is a "bullet" of some kind, whether circle, disc, or square. In ordered lists, it's a counter that increments by one for each successive list item.
