Use the <inject_html> directive.  See CreateJS.swc's Application class.

Sure, feel free to share the branch.

Did you try:

<js:Button className="mdl-button mdl-js-button mdl-button--fab
  <i class="material-icons">add</i>


<js:Button className="mdl-button mdl-js-button mdl-button--fab
    <i class="material-icons">add</i>

If neither of those worked, I will take a look.

I don't see any obvious problems.  I would examine the DOM in the browser
debugger and make sure the CSS got loaded and the className is properly
set on the HTMLButtonElement.  I'm wondering if the className gets reset
by the framework somehow.  Although note that setting the className on the
outer button class that wraps the HTMLButtonElement should set the
className on the button element.
