Subject [jira] [Commented] (TRINIDAD-2170) There is no way to specify a real pseudo element in a skin css.
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 23:00:40 GMT


Mark Yvanovich commented on TRINIDAD-2170:

As it turns out, the -moz-placeholder was implemented as a pseudo class, not a pseudo element.
 Not sure which JIRA needs to be update to reflect this.

> If you need a real css pseudo element rendered to the generated css, there is

> af|inputText::content::-moz-placeholder {}
> The generated selector needs to be:
> af_inputText_content::-moz-placeholder {}
> Currently, the generated CSS will output:
> af_inputText_content_-moz-placeholder {}
> One solution would be to have a whilelist of pseudo elements that we should
> render as is rather than replace the '::' with a '_'.
