Hello John,

Yeah, i know that the :after property doesn't work on all browsers,
that's why i've always used an image.

Yup, but a wanted to stray away from the tradional path ;-)

What i was worried about is the way how screen readers would
interprete it. Apart from the extraneous code, it would come in handy
as font sizing let's those tiny images (in my case it's a bread crumb
trail) be tiny on bigger font sizes....
