In short, yes and yes.

CSS generated content is supported in most browsers, but last time I
checked in JAWs was essentially invisible (VoiceOver will read it). It
isn't really on the list of 'reliable' methods to convey information yet.

Content generated by a script and inserted onload should be available to
virtually all access technology. (Putting aside the JavaScipt !=
Accessibility arguments.) It can be different if the content is added
dynamically as you go through the page, but as an equivalent to CSS
content, I assume you mean onload.
