With the popularisation of the goal to get web content that can exist universally, on all browsers, devices, and countries without writing an entire new site per each, I realised if it was possible or if the idea had been brought up to customise styling based on language?

For example, text-aligned right if Hebrew or Arabic, bold for Chinese (Simplified), or a white colour if Spain-Spanish?

The above were hypothetical ideas and in regards to the syntax, I am debating on what it could / would be because the CSS will not detect the language and convert the text, but would only check if a particular language is being used and style accordingly and if one can not be detected, then it defaults to english?. 

Do you guys have any ideas, comments, or suggestions?
