I'd recommend against doing anything dynamic with CSS.  In fact, I'd  
recommend against using #style at all.  Instead, set up a static  
stylesheet somewhere that has a CSS class for each possibility, and  
dynamically assign the right class to your controls.  If you really  
need to do something like compute a width, use a style attribute  
(html div style: 'width: 100px'; ...).

Does that help?
