Remove All Stylesheets from a Page using jQuery

Here’s a very simple piece of code that removes all stylesheet links from a Page using jQuery

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<
head>
<
title>Remove All Stylesheets From a Page</title>
<
link href="CSS/RoundCorners.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<
link href="CSS/FloatDes.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<
script type="text/javascript"
src="http://ajax.microsoft.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.4.2.min.js">
</
script>
<
script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
$("#removeAll").click(function() {
$('link[rel=stylesheet]').remove();
});
});
</script>
</
head>
<
body>
<
div class="sub-level"></div>
<
br />
<
input id="removeAll" type="button" value="Remove All Stylesheets" />
</
body>
</
html>

Originally the page with the stylesheets applied looked similar to the following:

remove stylesheets jquery

and after the Button is clicked and the stylesheets removed, the page looks like this

remove stylesheets jquery



Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance

Wouldn't go that far; but it is over-simplistic. What about stylesheets inserted via @import within an inline style?
