Embedding a Style Sheet

Sometimes you may want to embed a style sheet in a new <style> element rather than including or importing one. The simplest way to embed a style sheet is to create a Text node containing all the rules and then insert it into the <style> with appendChild().

function embedSheet(text) {
    var element = document.createElement("style");
    element.type = "text/css";
    text = document.createTextNode(text);
    try {
    } catch (e) {
        element.styleSheet.cssText = text.data;

Now let’s test embedSheet() by passing in a couple of rules that will change the sprite from blue to red.

embedSheet("ul.blue a {background-image:url(images/fuchsia.gif);} div#running {left:500px;}");
