Woo, Javascript will do it.

e.style.height = newheight + 'px';

One problem down....have a section of Javascript on each page to initialise 
the sizes of the dialogue members.  Once the stylesheet was applied, the 
sizes of the list box items and the scrollbar arrowheads would be known, so 
the calculation could pull that information from the relevant elements and 
work out the scrollbar height.

So to get the abstract UI definitions: the only approach I can think of is a 
visitor that traverses the GUI definition tree at run-time and converts it 
back into an abstract .ui-file-like definition from which CSS dialogue 
layouts can be made.

Anyone with experience care to comment on how feasible this all sounds?
