It's all a question of whether CSS Edit has made this method  
available through its Applescript dictionary. If you open the "Script  
Editor", which in my case resides in "Applications/AppleScript", then  
you can select "Open Dictionary..." From the file menu and search for  
the dictionary for CSS Edit. You might be lucky and find the refresh  
functionality there. Then you can modify the "Refresh browsers"  
function to do what you want.

If CSS Edit does not support AppleScript, I don't know if there is  
another way.
