Import Basic CSS to define Paragraph and Character styles in the library

Would love to just import or configure photoshop to point to simple CSS file to help define character and paragraph styles...    

This would help me manage basic customer types setting across several adobe products, and html assets.  

It seems like this would be a powerful feature and open up lots of innovation as CSS syntax looks very similar to JSON.

You can save Character Styles inside of your CC Library to update text. Interestingly if you have a text layer selected you have to have the MOVE tool selected and not the type tool. Double click on that Character Style with the type layer active and it'll change to the character style.



I know you can also load Paragraph Styles in the Paragraph Styles panel



So perhaps there's a way to make your CSS load there?

Thank Mark,  Will check it out...   Still would love an option to just not manage styles in photoshop, indesign, or illustrator...  

Would love to quickly write them in dreamweaver, coda, or sublime...   Use github to manage the changes... then when I open adobe creative it could load and read the properties from a CSS file on a master branch...     =O)

Yeah that would be great for my developer friends for sure.

I know we have lots of ways to get CSS out of these apps, but not much in the way of using it to control things internally.
