Browsers differ from each other, from common sense, and from the specs by

Given that we've discussed more than 2 models in this thread, that there
are at least two interpretations of the CSS2 model, and that CSS2.1 and

See the CSS3 Generated and Replaced Content model, which is part of the
same model:
