Or authors who want to use content:'\A' set white-space at the same 
time.  Since the only real reason the '\A' thing was added was to allow 
implementing <br>, the UA stylesheet rule could just be:  "br::after { 
content: '\A'; white-space: pre-line }".  There's a fair amount of old 
discussion on \A in generated content in the www-style archives...

To be honest, the example stylesheet has been buggy in numerous ways for 
years now, regardless of whether this particular case is buggy.
