Default Dynamicaly Theming Master Pages

It's possible to dynamically asign themes .aspx files through the Page_PreInit command, however i want to dynamically assign a theme to a master page, and master pages don't seam to support Page_PreInit event, how do i add a theme dynamically to a master page?

I'm also searching for an answer to this since I want to do the same thing. I haven't implemented it yet, but I'm going to try using the following logic: create a number of master pages each matching a theme. Then I'm going to try to put the theme name and the master page name into a variable that's stored in the database which can be retrieved from the database before the page renders.

I'm coming from PHP, and I know I can do this there, so hopefully I can do it with ASP.NET. I'm just learning ASP.NET 2.0, so I have more "logic" than applicable programming skill right now.

have a look at http://staff.develop.com/ballen/blog...ate=2005-01-01 this is apparently to do with the fact master pages are not actually "pages" but are inherited of user controls... or something stupid like that
