Setting stylesheet in code behind file to alleviate style "flicker"

Hi all,
I ve got a VS2005 web application which is using a single style sheet.
Originally I set the style sheet in the HTML itself using <link href="">. The style sheet has some basic settings for body font and table colors etc.
However when I load the page it is doing a weird flicker thing. It shows the page without formatting for a split second then it applies the style sheet and everything looks good.

I was wondering whether I could set the css in the page load event so that it occured before controls were loaded?
How do you set the pages style in code?
I tried         this.Page.StyleSheetTheme = "~/myStyle.css";  but it didnt apply any style.

Any ideas?

i'm not quite sure, but on header html block if the you add new tag with run-at=server, you should be able to modify that tag, i think!? also to change the CSS before the controls loads, then you need to change the CSS within OnInit() method
