  $('div[class*="webmesswrapper"]').css("height", "400px").css("width", "300px");

Is there a better way to do this besides chaining a bunch of css calls together?

is you are updating hyphenated properties, be sure to use quotes around the property name - ex:
wrong:
{height:"400px",width:"300px", margin-top:"3px"}
correct:
{height:"400px",width:"300px", "margin-top":"3px"}
