I only need this for IE5+ but basically we want to script the inclusion of an external stylesheet using javascript (to a child window).

We could use:
document.body.insertAdjacentHTML('beforeEnd','<link etc etc>');

but I'm sure there must be a more elegant solution.

Seems like that's the direction you need...not sure what else you can do, joshie76

Well darn it. My original idea (above) doesn't actually seem to work. Bit stuck now, any other ideas guys?

Let me quickly explain why we need it. The child window's (iframe) source is dynamically generated by a .dll (organisation chart software). This is a stand alone product which we are integrating into another web app and want to add some of our web app style to it. The chances of the .dll output changing to include our stylesheet are zero - hence our need for a client-side solution.

Got it!

<iframe name="myiframe" src="page.htm">
</iframe>

<script type="text/javascript">
window.myiframe.attachEvent('onload',attachCSS)
function attachCSS()
{
linkelm=document.createElement("link");
linkelm.rel="stylesheet";
linkelm.type="text/css";
linkelm.href="test.css";
window.myiframe.document.body.insertAdjacentElement('beforeEnd',linkelm);
}
</script>
