Support a context specific CSS file to control the look and feel of UI dialog components

Add the ability for there to be a PEM context specific CSS file which could be updated by Sponsor Admins and would control the look and feel of UI dialog components within activities.  This would require that the dialog components support the ability to specify an ID or class so that they can be referenced in the CSS file. 

This would provide flexibility on how components look visually but also allow "centralized" control for any updates.  Any changes made in the CSS file would then be picked up by all UI dialogs at run time.

As an optional bonus, the CSS file could also used to control how the PEM portal itself looks and feels.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

Visual components could be made to match the standards of the sponsor organization, making it look and feel closer to its own web sites.

    This is not the current direction for the activity framework. While it is an alternate way of approaching activities, we don't expect to consider or address this within the medium term.
