Did you look for a css Emacs mode?  www.emacswiki.org might be a good
starting point, as might be the Emacs Lisp List.

If you have a css mode, then you need to tell it to use an indentation
step of N and you also need to set tab-width to the same N.  (Usually,
the indentation step is 2 or 4 but tab-width is 8 by default.)  And
you need to set indent-tabs-mode to t, but that's the default.

Isn't it enough to always have RET do like C-j?  Why do you want RET
to behave differently if the last char is something else?

(require 'css-mode)
(define-key css-mode-map (kbd "RET") 'newline-and-indent)

Maybe you need to change css-mode and css-mode-map, depending on the
actual css mode that you are using.
