Notes

For content to appear in pseudo-elements, the content property must be set (but may be an empty string).

  1. IE8 only supports the single-colon CSS 2.1 syntax (i.e. :pseudo-class). It does not support the double-colon CSS3 syntax (i.e. ::pseudo-element).

Bugs

  • Chrome supports CSS transitions on generated content as of v. 26. Safari v6 and below do not support transitions or animations on pseudo elements.

  • IE9, IE10, IE11 ignore CSS rem units in the line-height property. Bug report.

  • Firefox & Edge do not support :after and :before for input fields
