    Question CSS cascading through frames


    Does anyone know of any way to cascade the effects of a css stylesheet on a frameset through the frames?

    The cascading of styles takes place within individual documents; hard to see how this could be applied to a frameset structure, which consists of a hierarchy of window objects. Might be a mechanism to simplify the application of CSS across a frameset, however.

    So there's no way to assign css attributes to a id'd frame? Such as:
    Code:
    <style>
    ...
    #mainFrame body { };
    #subFrame body { };
    ...
    </style>
    <frameset ... >
       <frame id="mainFrame" ... ></frame>
       <frame id="subFrame" ... ></frame>
    </frameset>
    Or something similar?

    you can't do that.


    if you want diffrent sets of styles, why not use diffrent css files linked to the main pages and subpages.

    Well, i would. But i'm looking for a quick fix to an old site while i develop the new one. there's maybe 50+ poorly created yet simple static html pages on the current site, and because i'm developing the new site, I haven't got time to go through editing all the others.

    Thats why a CSS page which cascades through frames would be a blessing - edit the frameset, upload the generic css files... done.

    If anyone can think of a quick solution i'd be grateful
