The code rebinds `C-h S' in css-mode to use this new function.
C-h S is currently info-lookup-symbol, so it seemed analogous.

Ok.  This makes sense to me, I will make the base URL configurable.

As far as I know there's no commonly-installed, free CSS documentation.
Normally I'd write this code to look for an installed copy first, but I
