No.  The R element is an inline element, so its :before pseudo element
has its 'display' property changed to 'inline' (according to the last
paragraph of CSS2 12.1).

Therefore, it will be rendered as a block box (the P element), with
marker containing the 'content' matching P:before, with the following
inside the box:
 * the 'content' matching the R:before (inline, computed from marker)
 * the content of the R (inline, computed from run-in)
 * the content of the P (anything)
