CSS class name: Apple-interchange-newline, Apple-converted-space, Apple-paste-as-quotation, Apple-style-span, and Apple-tab-span (deprecated)

These non-standard CSS classes are used to differentiate the span elements added by Blink itself in editing.


The span element with those classes make it hard to handle other span elements in editing, so one of them(Apple-style-span) has not been produced since 2011( https://webkit.org/blog/1737/apple-style-span-is-gone/). Other classes will be also removed from Blink. Here is the discussion for intent to remove: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/d/msg/blink-dev/OlgmGUvnMU4/9HMNXMjGCQAJ
