No.  That sort of concept was first really introduced with the
commercialisationof HTML by Netscape.  Even Mosaic allowed users some
control over presentation that was removed by Navigator.

The original concept of HTML explicitly rejected control of colours, and
was intended to allow the browser to choose the rendering.
