Since the 9.5 version , you can generate a set of new style properties with 
the Style/CSS Style... form.
When the current selection is within a source view or a CSS document, he 
generated text (like color: ...; border: ...;) replaces the content of the 
current selection.

Today, there is no initialization of the form.
This form will change in the next Amaya version. We hope users will find it 
more complet and useful.

Just select the position where CSS properties should be generated.
