That’s non-conforming behaviour against the spec.

When their computed content value is not none, these pseudo-elements generate boxes as if they were immediate children of their originating element, and can be styled exactly like any normal document-sourced element in the document tree.

Since input elements don’t have children they should not receive pseudo-elements.

It certainly doesn’t work in FF and probably not IE..
