Could one style elements written with JQuery?

I was wondering if after using .append('<button> show spoiler </button>'); if I could change styles with the button? Would it be selected in CSS and styled like an HTML element? If so, how would it be selected since it is an JQuery element?

If you have a CSS rule that target that button it would apply all the styles described in that rule. If you inspect your code with developer tools after appending, you'll see that the button actually exist as an HTML element in your code.
