we are in the process of developing a site that needs to be mac and pc based. Both are viewed in MSIE 5+.

My problems is that the mac version needs a different style sheet to that of the pc version. I am trying to set up and if statement looking for the different versions but my problem is linking the style sheet in the javascript if statement using the <link> tag

can anyone assist

It is commonly done usign server-side scripting, but also possible with javascript:

if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Mac") > -1)
document.write("<link rel='stylesheet' href='macstyle.css'>")
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Win") > -1)
document.write("<link rel='stylesheet' href='winstyle.css'>")
document.write("<link rel='stylesheet' href='nixstyle.css'>")

Place this in the <script> section of the <head> of your pages, or save it in external .js file and attach to all pages.
