Nah you didn't get it :) The color of the span inherits from the div, always. The fact Chrome does not do that is a violation of css-cascade. The existence of pseudo elements doesn't change the style of normal elements. The style of elements is computed before layout.

The reason the text is red is that the color of the text is not the color of the span (if you execute the line of javascript I provided, you will be able to confirm that color is blue) but, insead, it is the color of the text run; the text run is not an element and is created based on styling information during layout; its style thus may depend on the ::first-line style, but that is a totally different thing than to say the span inherits from ::first-line.

I should never do, for no property. Neither color, nor background, nor border. At least that is my understanding of it.
