Note:

In Dreamweaver CC and later, CSS Styles panel is replaced with CSS Designer. For more information, see CSS Designer.

You can easily edit both internal and external rules that you have applied to a document.

When you edit a CSS style sheet that controls the text in your document, you instantly reformat all of the text controlled by that CSS style sheet. Edits to an external style sheet affect all the documents linked to it.

You can set an external editor to use for editing style sheets.
