I will attach a testcase in reply to this. --- "The :before and :after pseudo-elements" http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/selector.html#before-and-after Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Try to select the red or blue text added by the :before and :after pseudo-elements. Actual results: The text is unselecteable except for what was originally in the body tag (the black text).
