Btw, I find the Appendix C text rather confusing:

"C.1.3 Section 12.2 The 'content' property

New 'content' value 'normal'. (Because ':before {content: ""}' generates
a box, while ':before {content: normal}' does not. It is called 'normal'
and not 'none', because 'content: normal' will mean other things for
other kinds of elements in CSS3.)"
