CSS ::before - Add Content before Specified Element

The CSS ::before pseudo-element is used when we need to add a content before the content of selected element. For example:

HTML with CSS Code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
   <style>
      p::before {content: ">>"; font-weight: bold; color: firebrick;}
   </style>
</head>
<body>

   <p>This para one.</p>
   <p>This is para two.</p>

</body>
</html>
Output

This para one.

This is para two.
