suffix

This article needs a technical review. How you can help.

Summary

The suffix is used with @counter-style to specify a symbol that will be appended to the marker representation. A symbol can be a string, image or a CSS identifier. If not specified, the descriptor assumes the default value "\2E\20" ("." full stop followed by a space).
