Format Callouts Inline for One Time Use

What I’m trying to do

Is there a way to format how a callout looks on the fly?

For example if you use html, you can change the text color when editing the notes WITHOUT creating css snippets :
simply typing this code in edit mode results in “Text” appearing green in Read mode.

<font style="color:green">Text </font>

I was wondering if there was something similar for formatting callouts. Is there a way to directly specify the “callout-color”, “callout-icon” elements in edit mode? I know the svg link and color RGB notation to use, and I’m only going to use a certain callout formatting once, so I don’t need it as a template.

I understand that you can customize callout appearances using CSS snippets. This is useful when you want to make a multi-use callout format like how templates work. But in my case, I just want to decorate one-time use callouts.

CSS is the way to go for styling, and by default Obsidian doesn’t allow styling directly of markdown elements.

There is an option to use html-tags, but then you have to forego markdown within the html-tags.

You might find a plugin allowing you to do some styling. I think I’ve seen one, but can’t remember the name of it.
