I was looking at David Ascher's blog and tried to look at the CSS he'd applied to the :first-letter of the :first-child paragraph. While the :first-child rule shows up fine in the style inspector, I had to go to Firebug's to see the :first-letter rule.
Component: Developer Tools: Style Editor → Developer Tools: Inspector
QA Contact: developer.tools.style.editor → developer.tools.inspector
Summary: :first-child rules not visible → :first-letter rules not visible
This also applies to the :first-line, :before and :after pseudo-elements, so it might be a duplicate or it may have dependencies related to pseudo-elements. e.g. http://jsfiddle.net/reesY/3/
:first-child is a pseudo class, while :first-letter is a pseudo element. :first-letter doesn't actually exist as a DOM element, that is why it doesn't work.
