I was just looking at that yesterday, actually. (And wondering why
list layout is high-security...)

"content: ''" should do what you want even if '' does not generate
an inline since :before is an inline by itself.

Also, if the list margins are line height, you can work around the
problem by using an unnoticeable bit of padding to break the margin
