Hi, I have high hopes for Affinity Publisher.

 

There is still a thing that are really hard to do with Indesign that is easily achieved with HTML and CSS, inline styled blocks.

 

I would love to be able to select one or more paragraphs and apply a block style to them.

 

Currently you can’t do that in Indesign without creating a separate block that will not flow with the rest of the text.

 

Last time I had a page to layout with multiple blocks after trying to do it in Indesign I opted to use HTML and CSS and then convert it to PDF using PrinceXML.

I don't know what do you mean under "block style".

I'm also a little uncertain what exactly is meant and an image for an example would be good. I do know what inline blocks are in relation to html and suspect whatever was being tried can be accomplished in ID & Q already in one way or another.
