Flex supports CSS but it has got its components and therefore different selector names and style properties. All traditional CSS styles may not be applicable as is.

It might be pertinent to add here that our Product development team develops Prototypes in Traditional HTML / css, we simply import these css into our development and they work right out of the box.

In almost about 2 years, we never had any incompatibilities.

may be css styles are a subset of what attributes we can set for the flex components. A good move by Adobe.
I agree. Here's the link:
