Remarks

Style items that are added programmatically to a CssStyleCollection collection for a control with the Item[] property or the Add method that take an HtmlTextWriterStyle enumeration value as an input are included in the count of style items that are returned with the Count property and are included with the string literal that is returned with the Value property. These attributes are strongly typed. If the cascading style sheet attribute that you want to add to a server control exists in the HtmlTextWriterStyle enumeration, use these strongly typed methods. If the attribute you want to add does not exist in the HtmlTextWriterStyle enumeration, use the Item[] property or the Add method.

Trying to access an HtmlTextWriterStyle enumeration value in the CssStyleCollection of a control that has not been added or to access a CSS attribute that has been added with the Item[] property or the Add method, returns null using the Item[] property.
