Hi,

I have a requirement to define a style such that the data always appears between paranthesis. For ex, if I have a style called textwith3indent, is it possbile to define this style in a such a manner that when it is applied, the reulting data appears in paranthesis,

If the data is

"sample data"

after application of the style, it has to look like

(sample data)

Please let me know if that is doable by mere application of style.

Not in the current CSS spec you can not do it. In the future one you will be able to do it.

Why don't you do some sort of replace with the string on the server?

You could also try using JavaScript to make the changes of the innerHTML, but it would not be your best solution.

Thanks Eric for the quick response. I was also thinking in the same lines of appending the prefix & suffix characters to the real data. The other group in here wanted to do it using style. Just wanted to confirm that there is no way to do it using a style alone before telling them.

Thankyou.
