In CSS 2.1, the computed value of the 'content' property is defined as:

On elements, always computes to 'normal'. On :before and :after, if 
'normal' is specified, computes to 'none'. Otherwise, for URI values, 
the absolute URI; for attr() values, the resulting string; for other 
keywords, as specified.

The computed value on other pseudo-elements (ie. :first-line and 
:first-letter) is not defined. I suggest changing the first sentence to:

On elements, :first-line or :first-letter, always computes to 'normal'.

At least in CSS 2.1, properties can only be applied to elements or 
pseudo-elements; and only these four pseudo-elements exist. So this 
should covers all cases.
