Fangs ignores CSS property "content" and/or the
"before" pseudoclass, e.g.
<html><head>
<style type="text/css">
.home:before { content: "Homepage: " }
</style>
</head><body>
<span class="home">Website</span>
</body></html>

renders in Fangs (0.81) as
Website
should render as
Homepage: Website

    Special characters added via content:after display as
    unknowns when Fangs is installed. Example: right
    double-angle bracket added at end of list items when
    creating CSS breadcrumb trail for navigation; show up as
    unknown character (? inside of diamond) rather than as .

    I can not remember if JAWS reads this. Will check and fix if
    this is the case.

    Fangs tries to emulate Jaws. Jaws works on top of IE and
    does not care about :before pseudoclasses and content.
    Hence, emulation is correct.

    Fangs uses IE as the renderer. IE has noit implemented the before pseudoclass so Fangs/Jaws will not get this information. Emulations is correct.
