Do Confluence pages support CSS `::before` selectors?

I've used {style} and {div} macros to make some custom sections on a Confluence page. And as a part of these sections, I've added a ::before selector with some content and styles to act as a label.

The CSS I've used follows:

div.section-wip {
	margin-left:20px;
	margin-bottom:20px;
	padding:10px;
	background-color:#ebeff5;
	border:1px dashed blue;
	border-radius:5px;
}
div.section-wip::before {
	content:"Work in Progress:";
	display:block;
	font-weight:bold;
	color:#606098;
}


div.section-planned {
	margin-left:20px;
	margin-bottom:20px;
	padding:10px;
	background-color:#eaf3ea;
	border:1px dashed green;
	border-radius:5px;
}
div.section-planned::before {
	content:"Planned Feature:";
	display:block;
	font-weight:bold;
	color:#4f884f;
}

 

Interestingly, it works perfectly in the Edit Preview, however it looks like the ::before selectors are ignored after saving the page, as this screenshot illustrates:

This widget could not be displayed.

Does ::before show up in the storage format? If not, what happens if you use something like the Source Editor add on?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "storage format," but if I use Confluence's "View Source" option, the ::before selectors are all there.
