CSS content property is used to generate content in an element. It can only be used with the pseudo elements :after and :before.

<style>
.cnt_ex1:before {
 content: '~> ';
 color: #0000d0;
}

.cnt_ex1:after {
 content: ' <~';
 color: #0000d0;
}
</style>

<h4>Example CSS content</h4>

<div class='cnt_ex1'>CoursesWeb.net</div>
<div class='cnt_ex1'>MarPlo.net</div>
<div class='cnt_ex1'>GamV.eu</div>

The <style> element from these examples must be added in the <head> section of the page.
