nested master pages help

I'm using nested master pages and I need to override the header content so that I can reference a different style sheet for my nested master page, as well as, change the title for my content pages.  I was trying an object oriented approach.

Here is the header section of my main master page:

<%@ Master Language="C#" %>
<%@ Register Src="../UserControls/TopNavigationBar.ascx" TagName="TopNavigationBar"
    TagPrefix="uc2" %>
<%@ Register Src="../UserControls/searchform.ascx" TagName="searchform" TagPrefix="uc1" %>
<%@ Register Src="../UserControls/MainNavigationBar.ascx" TagName="MainNavigationBar" TagPrefix="uc3" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title><% = m_HtmlTitle %></title>
    <link href="../<% = m_HtmlStyles %>" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
etc., etc...

Here is tMain master code-behind:

public partial class Template : System.Web.UI.MasterPage
{
    protected String m_HtmlTitle;

        public String HtmlTitle
        {
            get { return m_HtmlTitle; }
            set { m_HtmlTitle = value; }
        }

        protected String m_HtmlStyles;

        public String HtmlStyles
        {
            get { return m_HtmlStyles; }
            set { m_HtmlStyles = value; }
        }

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
             this.Master.HtmlTitle = "Educational Software Solutions - Student, Curriculum Assessment & Management :: CompassLearning";
             this.Master.HtmlStyles = "styles.css";
    }
}


I'm getting the following error:

The name 'm_HtmlTitle' does not exist in the current context

Any help is appreciated.

I read the articles and tried using:

public partial class index : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Master.FindControl("MainNavigationBar1").Visible = false;

        HtmlLink cssLink = new HtmlLink();
        cssLink.Href = "~/styles2.css";
        cssLink.Attributes.Add("rel", "stylesheet");
        cssLink.Attributes.Add("type", "text/css");
        Header.Controls.Add(cssLink);
    }
}

When I ran my page, it showed that the stylesheet had been added, but I still had my original stylesheet listed.  So, my page had my original stylesheet from my master page and the new stylesheet added on the pageload.

I want to replace the stylesheet from the master page with the new one?

Since I have nested master pages, ideally, I'd like to switch the stylesheet within the nested master page.

My master page uses styles.css
My nested master page needs to use styles2.css

Possible?
