You don't need to do it JavaScript. CSS is loaded automatically when page loads. So the code should look like this:

<html>
  <head>
  <title></title>
<style>
#smaller { font-size: smaller }
</style>
  </head>
  <body>
Normal text
<iframe id="smaller" src="youriframesource"></iframe>
  </body>
</html>

Looks to me like they are the same size


<html>
  <head>
  <title></title>
<style>
#smaller { font-size: x-small }
</style>
<script>
var text ="<h3>Hello</h3> World"
</script>
  </head>
  <body>
<h3>Hello</h3> World<br>
<iframe id="smaller" src="javascript:top.text"></iframe>
  </body>
</html>
