The CSS pseudo elements, :before and :after, have been around since IE8. So, this is probably not news to many of you. But, for me personally, I just started using the :before and :after pseudo elements and I've been absolutely loving them! They making it much easier to keep design-centric elements out of your markup and in your CSS (where they belong). Anyway, I thought I'd put together a quick demo in case anyone else is late to the party.
