How to put a conditional-dynamic stylesheet in header ASP.net C#

I want to add this to my masterpage:

<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/clinicblue7.css" media="screen" type="text/css" />
<![endif]-->
<!-- tell iPhone not to shrink mobile website -->

But I want the set the "clinicblue7.css" part in the c# code.  I am currently adding other stylesheets dynamically using this method. How do I do a similar thing with the above referenced code.


System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlLink link = new HtmlLink();
        link.Attributes.Add("media", "screen and (min-device-width: 481px)");
        link.Href = "Css/" + value + ".css";
        link.Attributes.Add("type", "text/css");
        link.Attributes.Add("rel", "stylesheet");
        Page.Header.Controls.Add(link);

Thanks, but I am just looking to use the code I referenced to see that the browser is Internet Explorer and to use a specified stylesheet that I will specify dynamically in the code behind.  This will have no end user interaction.

You can't determine the client browser by using c# or vb.net.
You have to use client side scripts only.

Use this concept (Please let me know how it is):

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            if (Request.Browser.Browser == "IE")
            {
                System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlLink link = new HtmlLink();
                link.Attributes.Add("media", "screen and (min-device-width: 481px)");
                link.Href = "Css/" + value + ".css";
                link.Attributes.Add("type", "text/css");
                link.Attributes.Add("rel", "stylesheet");
                Page.Header.Controls.Add(link);
            }
        }
    }

Yeah, I don't want to use c# to determine the browser.  I just want to dynamically specify what style sheet to use if that browser condition is met in the head section of html.  

this:
<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/clinicblue7.css" media="screen" type="text/css" />
<![endif]-->
<!-- tell iPhone not to shrink mobile website -->

is what I will be using but I need to change the name of the css based on other things happening.
