 +**(css: // [[harlowe:​String|String]]//​) -> //​[[harlowe:​Changer|Changer]]//​**
  
 +This takes a [[harlowe:​string|string]] of inline CSS, and applies it to the hook, as if it
 +were a HTML "​style"​ property.
 +
 +=== Usage example: ===
 +
 +<​code>​
 +(css: "​background-color:​indigo"​)
 +</​code>​
 +=== Rationale: ===
 +
 +The built-in macros for layout and styling hooks, such as [[harlowe:​text-style|(text-style:​)]],​
 +are powerful and geared toward ease-of-use,​ but do not entirely provide
 +comprehensive access to the browser'​s styling. This [[harlowe:​Changer|Changer]] macro allows
 +extended styling, using inline CSS, to be applied to hooks.
 +
 +This is, however, intended solely as a "macro of last resort"​ - as it requires
 +basic knowledge of CSS - a separate language distinct from Harlowe - to use,
 +and requires it be provided a single inert string, it's not as accommodating as
 +the other such macros.
