Applying style is only avialable in the selected frame. If you link two,
or more text frames, at first have to put the text into one "unlinked"
frame, meantime apply the styles and finally link the frames.

start_pos = getTextLength(selected_frame)
insertText(append_text, -1, selected_frame)
insertText("", start_pos, selected_frame)
selectText(start_pos, len(append_text), selected_frame)
setStyle(style, selected_frame)
linkTextFrames("fromname", "toname")
