Pseudo-Elements ::before||::after

Ain't a question. Just wanted to let everyone know (but everyone probably know already!) that Microsoft had everyone using IE7 and below to upgrade to at least IE 8. Which means that you can have IE7 and below only if you do not have Internet available so that you are forced to upgrade. And if you don't have internet, why do you even care wheter or not I use pseudo-elements? <3

Are you saying we can use the double colon?

Pretty much, yeah. As long as a user HAS the Internet available. Microsoft forced the IE8 Update, so there was no way around it. If you do not have IE8, you simply have no Internet on the machine.
