    I was very pleased to see that stylesheet combining was added for Q1 2011!  I did something like this and it worked as expected. 

    <telerik:RadStyleSheetManager ID="RadStyleSheetManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:StyleSheetReference Path="~/Styles/Common.css"  />

    My question is, can someone tell me how it works behind the scenes?  Specifically I'm wondering if the file combination is done at every page request, or is done once and then cached somewhere? 

    Also, what is IsCommonCss for?

    Hello msigman,

    Combining happens each time the WebResource containing all registered style sheets is requested from a page. If your browser caching is enabled the request will be cached and not requested from the same page again.

    The IsCommonCss property is used when constructing the path to embedded common style sheets. It has no relevance to external style sheets.

    I hope I have answered your questions. Please let me know if you need more information or you have additional questions.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
