any way to modify the DOM on the fly ?

Dw used to include a feature called, 'design time style sheets', which would have done what you wish. Unfortunatly this feature was removed a number of years ago, (i think it was in Dw2014).
You could try dropping back to Dw CS6, as i know that version did include the feature.
Yes, DW CS6 supported Design Time stylesheets. They were removed in 2015 for reasons I will never understand.

I just tested this...
...in CC2018, and the css affects the Design View, though I did have to use the OS path (C:\path\to\file.css) of the .css file to get it to work.
I don't want to get into a discussion about this, but Prerans reply in the thread Jon linked to, does make sense in the context that Dw is for 'designers who wish to code'.
Such a feature as design time style sheets, is aimed more at developers than designers who wish to code.
Unfortunatly it does for me confirm that Dw is no longer for serious development work, which even though regrettable, is now something that cannot be changed, as that roadmap is now too far advanced.
