The mail editor currently only use non-style ways for styling.
Using css styles instead would be more modern, and e.g. allow inlining styles from stylesheets. There are cases where other mailers (e.g. gmail, bug 861788) don't even display the old style styling.

After this change, it's possible to set the pref, or use editor.document.execCommand("styleWithCSS", false, "true") to enable css in mail compose.

Allow useCss for mail editor. r=masayuki

By setting the hidden pref editor.use_css true the mail editor now uses styles for editing.
I guess we can close this for now and address any further needs to adjust when this is set, in separate bugs.
